The national Prescribing
Observatory for Mental Health (POMH-UK) aims to help specialist
mental health Trusts/healthcare organisations improve their
prescribing practice. POMH-UK, with its member organisations,
identifies specific topics within mental health prescribing and
develops audit-based Quality Improvement Programmes (QIPs).
Organisations are able to
benchmark their performance against one another and identify where
their prescribing practice meets nationally agreed standards and
where it falls short. Wide participation in QIPs creates a
picture of prescribing practice nationally.
POMH-UK was originally funded
by a tapering grant from an independent charity, the Health Foundation,
under its ‘Engaging with Quality’ initiative. The project is now
funded by subscriptions from member organisations. POMH-UK does not
recieve funding from the pharmaceutical industry.
