The College extends its congratulations to the Beechcroft psychotropic PRN medication project, which won Highly Commended (2nd place) in the Innovation in Quality Improvement category in the BMJ Awards. 

Speaking afterwards, Dr Claire Kelly said, "The project improved quality of care for young people.  We achieved statistically significant reductions in PRN use, which has been sustained for the past two years.

The results reflect the multidisciplinary team’s ongoing commitment to improving patient care. We are absolutely delighted with the recognition and so proud of the team’s hard work."
