The Way Forward
  • Ann Foley
  • Principal Lecturer UCLAN

UCLAN has always been really happy to support
all the initiatives and development work to have
come out of Benchmarking . Financial demands are
now driving the changes but that the group should
harness all the excellent work that has arisen
out of Benchmarking relating to Play and focus on
how this has made the experiences of children and
their families going into hospital much
better. Also, that the networking opportunities
have allowed play specialists and play workers to
learn from each other and disseminate best
practice.

Hampson
Hi Gang Just to say how very sorry I am not to be
able to attend the meeting, I was really looking
forward to seeing you all (and I will miss
the cakes!!) I just wanted to say how much I
have enjoyed doing the Benchmarking and how much
I have learned from it. I thought children just
'played' but can now see how valuable you all are
when youngsters are away from home in hospital,
because it must be a very frightening experience
for some of them. Also Thank You for your
patience when things have not gone quite to plan
and you have not received your completed
Benchmarks on time. It was nice to know that you
realised things do sometimes go awry (and I am
missing the cakes!!). I hope that some of you
manage to keep in touch and keep up the good
work. Networking and passing on information and
good practice must be one of the best ways to
improve the service (and having cakes of
course!!) I was looking forward to seeing the
Clown Doctors as well. I saw them on TV a while
ago and was very excited when I knew they were
going to be there (hope they don't miss the
cakes!!) Well keep up the good work it was
lovely working with you all. Now you can all go
and have your cake!! Love Betty

Play Specialist DGH Perspective
  • Hi Frances just a quick note I hope you will
    forward on to the group. I left Leighton hospital
    last week to take up a position in a school, so
    no more benchmarking for me and I wanted to say
    goodbye to you all.
  • I shall miss the support of the group and I know
    that the play service at Leighton has improved
    and benefited greatly from being part of the
    group and benchmarking  their practice.
  • So now I move on to a new chapter of my career
    and I feel my time as a play specialist has not
    been wasted as my five year old reminded me the
    other evening whilst I treated his painful
    verruca. He shouted out " Mummy stop I need some
    distraction!!!!!!" so maybe I did get the message
    over after all !!!
  • I'm sorry I couldn't be with you all but keep up
    the fight for quality play services and enjoy
    this celebration of benchmarking.
  •                                                   
                       take care
  •                                                   
                               love

Paediatric Senior Nurse Perspective
  • Play Benchmarking
  • As a paediatric nurse and now a manager of
    paediatric areas I have always encouraged and
    supported the play staff to attend the play
    benchmarking meetings. The outcomes from these
    meetings have not only been beneficial to the
    play staff but also the nursing and multi
    disciplinary teams and most of all the children
    and families.
  • Areas of development from the play benchmarking
    meetings have included standardisation of health
    and safety guidelines, development of play
    staffs ability to undertake risk assessments,
    development of play profiles/care plans for long
    term/complex need patients, development of play
    staffs knowledge re distraction/diversional
    therapy.
  • I have, on occasions attended some of the play
    benchmarking meetings and found them both
    enjoyable and educational to the play staff and
    myself. All members of the group are enthusiastic
    and passionate about their job and improving
    services for the children. The communication and
    network between group members can never be
    forgotten and I am sure that members of the group
    have made good friendships and will continue to
    network with each other and share information.
  • I hope that the group members will continue to
    meet and continue their hard work. The play
    benchmarking group has helped to further develop
    the recognition of play staff as a professionals
    within their own right.

Warrington have joined this year, Trafford , Glen
Clwyd are interested, Royal Belfast and community
play specialist from within the North West.   We
have supported and networked with other areas and
hospitals commencing benchmarking e.g. Great
Ormond Street where they have successfully
compiled one benchmark and are assessing the
outcomes. We were kindly invited to Bolton
Hospital Play specialist course this year, where
the student play specialist warmly received
benchmarking and saw the value. They expressed
how it is important for play specialists to
continue to benchmark their practice and for us
all to look to standardising best practice to
continue to develop the profession.    It has
been evident from looking at benchmark outcomes
that we meet an average C throughout the North
West with in the continuum with an emphasis on
improving documentation, equality and diversity
of service users and relevant training/learning
development specific to the actual benchmarks. It
is recognised the professional role is constantly
increasing with added business pressures, due to
improved recognition of the knowledge and skills
play specialist have and DOH standards
recommendations . With the next year hearing
how children, young people and families consider
the benchmarks and what they perceive has best
practice by participation and consultation.
Throughout the year we have included reflective
practice identifying how play practitioners have
found benchmarking has developed their
confidence, definitely improved practice ,
developed policies, audit tools etc and created
a robust networking scheme,  good support ?peer
supervision and life long learning opportunities
and improved the perception of the professional
.role .   Has a benchmarking facilitator It
appear I  am rang weekly by play specialists,
paediatric managers, student nurses, university
lecturers from throughout for support,
information , advise, re benchmarking and now
allied heath professionals who are enquiring.
Isn't this more evidence of the excellent
work play specialists are providing and improving
continuously.

  •   Play specialists/practitioners have
    demonstrated by promoting and sharing
    their practice e.g. play specialists have
    presented their excellent effective work on
    consultation, audits of their current practice,
    multi sensory provision, involvement
    collaboratively with complimentary therapies ,
    teaching posters re the role of hospital play
    specialists and many more . 
  •  
  • Plus supporting clinical governance e.g. via effec
    tive leadership , patient public consultation by
    consultation with children, young
    peoples, families and professionals inclusive of
    ethnicity and diversity. Also addressing the NSF 
    for example  by working collaboratively within
    the paediatric  pain IV , first
    contact benchmark  and the psychological prep.
    distraction and preparation to hospital and
    discharge. 
  •  
  • It was a pleasure  for nursing staff to express
    at the North West managers meeting of
    approximately 40  paediatric managers . Due to
    nursing staff and managers attending play
    benchmarking meetings .  
  •  
  • That the nursing staff felt NW play benchmarking
    has developed an excellent model of how they
    benchmark and reflect to help share practice. It
    was suggested they should look towards
    following the play benchmarking model.
  •  
  • Well done to all play practitioners who
    participate in benchmarking isn't this wonderful
    evidence of leadership and professionalism. 
  •  
  • Finally this year as had a distraction throughout
    the meetings caused by Agenda for change where
    this has been discussed, where benchmarking can
    provide evident of the professional and intense
    evidence based practice of the work that they
    do. It also supports the core dimensions of
    Knowledge and skills framework to help play
    practitioners to have the evidence to show the
    levels of the work they carry out on a day to day
    basis and meeting the indicators.
  •  
  • May I take this opportunity to express my thanks
    to all play practitioners who facilitate and
    participate in benchmarking is isn't inspiring to
    see the high standard of professionalism and true
    commitment to play specialism  and the quality of
    the work. Thank you to everyone to quote

  • I am truly sorry that I am not able to
    participate in todays celebration of
    Benchmarking in the North West.
  • In my experience the work which is undertaken
    within the scope of the Benchmark agenda is
    pivotal to endorsing the need for effective
    standards for Neonates, Children, Young People
    and their families/carers. Benchmarking allows
    professionals to translate Quality of practice
    into something that is meaningful and effective
    in bringing about change and development. It also
    empowers children, young people and their
    families to be involved in a variety of ways,
    ensuring that their voices are heard at different
    levels of the organisation.
  • Benchmarking, in my opinion, fully underpins the
    DOH Standards for Better Health. The progress
    made by the teams involved in Benchmarking
    supports the rationale that Standards for Better
    Health has at its heart, the development of safe
    high quality care as we continue to make progress
    in developing a modern National Health Service
    (John Reid, July 2004)
  • What more can I say other than to wish you all
    every success and a really enjoyable day
  • Kind regards  
  • Berenice

  • Therefore, what can we claim to have done in the
    past ten years? Well, I have neither the time nor
    the energy to try to archive that volume of work.
    In essence, I think the major achievements that
    we can all be proud of are the following
  • Established a three proactive healthcare groups
    of professional (Childrens Nurses, Neonatal
    Nurses and Play Specialists)
  • Put all three disciplines on the Map,
    literally, certainly in the North West
  • Commanded the acknowledgement and respect of
    other healthcare professionals
  • Provided a broad clinical supervision framework
    for all its members
  • Drawn the best practice standards for an
    extensive range of care values
  • Stimulated the development of care in over 35
    hospital/community districts
  • Empowered a often maligned healthcare workforce
  • Been honest and professional
  • Above all, retained children (wherever they are)
    at the centre of all of our efforts good luck

Dr Judith Ellis MBE
  • The play benchmarking group was established in
    1994 and in those early days members came from
    isolated positions, only knowing colleagues if
    they happened to have trained as HPS's together.
  • What was common to every member was their
    enthusiasm and eagerness to compare and share
    good practice, initially with some trepidation
    about sharing concerns but always with thoughts
    of improving care for children.
  • The group members felt disempowered in developing
    services, few had any budgetary knowledge or
    acumen and were reliant on the good will of other
    professionals to develop play services.
  • Very rapidly hearing from others what was
    possible changed the play benchmarking group into
    a team to be reckoned with and this is how it has
    remained. This confidence and resolve is for the
    sake of the children and indeed play staff of the
    future important to  maintain.
  • With the NSF the role and importance of play
    staff has never been better recognised. What is
    now needed is political noose and coordinated
    effort.
  • Keep going with the sharing and comparing, keep
    going together - don't loose the power that
    togetherness gives you!
  • All the best
  •  
  • Judith  
  •  Go for it
