The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness






The Prescribing Observatory for Mental Health (POMH-UK) is a subscription based project that helps specialist mental health services across the UK improve their prescribing practice.

To achieve this, we develop audit-based Quality Improvement Programmes (QIPs) that focus on specific topics within mental health prescribing.
