Congratulations to John Lawton and Patricia Mabeza, Roz Gittins and David Branford who successfully recredentialed with the College recently.
John Lawton is Clinical Pharmacy Services Manager at Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. The assessor highlighted three areas of his as being most impressive: teaching at the university, contributing to the transformation of the pharmacy department and supporting a junior pharmacist in their training.
After going through the recredentialing process, John said: “Working in mental health pharmacy for most of my career has been, and remains intensely rewarding on both professional and personal levels. It is a real privilege to work alongside great people, both within pharmacy and across different professions and genuinely feel like you are making a difference each day.”
Patricia Mabeza is Lead Pharmacist for Mental Health and Older Adults at Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. Patricia was complimented on the quality of her work, including teaching at the University, presenting a poster at CMHP conference, raising awareness of medicines safety and her audit.
When asked to reflect on the recredentialing process, Patricia said: “[Being recrdentialed] boosts my confidence in my day-to-day work as I realise that my work has been assessed and acknowledged by specialists in my field as up-to-date and on par with my peers. I think it also motivates me to continue working on improving my clinical practice and therefore help improve outcomes for my patients as I work with other health professionals in a multi-disciplinary setting.”
Roz Gittins is Director of Pharmacy at Humankind. The assessor’s main comment on Roz’s recredentialing submission was: “This submission shows a lot of incredible work over the last five years working at an advanced level and is passed at a high standard… most impressive.”
When asked about her role, Roz commented: “I get to work with talented colleagues to influence change and improve service delivery for people who use Humankind’s services across the country. I have a particular focus on high quality care provision in our specialist drug and alcohol treatment services, which includes research and innovation.”
David Branford is a Pharmacy Consultant for NHS England. He is also a Fellow of CMHP in recognition of his distinguished service in the field. The assessor of David’s portfolio commented: “the evidence for working at an advanced level over the last five years was overwhelming with strategic work and many high level publications."
