Around 40 people attended the showcase at Easthampstead Park on 17 May which was co-hosted with Berkshire Healthcare.

Prof Gary Ford, Chief Executive of the Oxford AHSN, gave an overview of the depth and breadth of collaboration across the Oxford AHSN region.

This was demonstrated in more detailed presentations covering dementia, early intervention in psychosis, medicines optimisation, anxiety and depression and patient safety on mental health wards.

There were also contributions from patient leader Carol Munt and Evidence Based Healthcare Masters Fellow Kate Masters, a Berkshire Healthcare pharmacist.
