Last year the Trust organised for Dr Liz MacDonald a Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist from London with over 30 years’ experience in the area to come to Cornwall. Liz delivered three tailored half-day teaching programmes for Health Visitors and Midwives, Community Mental Health staff, GP’s and Psychiatrists. The training took place at the Alverton Manor and the Knowledge Spa. In total almost 200 local health professionals received some excellent specialist training.
The local Specialist Perinatal Mental Health Service gave updates on the local perinatal pathway and their role and activities. Our feedback showed that the training was extremely well received and we hope to be able to deliver similar training in the future.
