Melanie Farman, PMH Quality Improvement Lead at the SCN said:

Clare and Manisha work tirelessly, along with their colleague Dr Ayesha Rahim, to improve care for women with mental health illnesses in the perinatal period, their infants and families. Many congratulations and a huge thank you to them for all their hard work and ongoing support. This recognition is very well deserved!

Both Manisha and Clare are members of the SCN’s wider PMH Network and Clare is also acting Chair of our PMH ‘Asking About Mental Health & Wellbeing Subgroup’. She successfully completed the iHV Perinatal and Infant Mental Health Champions training (reported on in our July newsletter) and is now rolling out this training locally with one of the new Perinatal Outreach Workers for the new Chorley Mother and Baby Unit.
