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
receive funding from the pharmaceutical industry.
