This enabled delivery of some of the highest clinical outcomes in London for 2017/18 and a national award for an outstanding perinatal mental health service.Lucy will describe her approach, taking seriously the conditions needed for staff to deliver to high standards as well as their partnership model with GPs, primary care and community nursing staff. About the speaker: Lucy Marks was involved in the first cohort of training for Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy, and led the move of the psychology and counselling service out of Barts Health NHS Trust into a Social Enterprise, which went on win contracts for School Nursing and Family Nurse Partnership. She stepped down from her CEO role in November 2018 and is now working independently providing coaching.
