Prometheus provides the Trust with the peace of mind of a guaranteed two hour collection service and a team that is carefully selected based on the individual needs of the patient.
“We need a reliable and professional service that we can trust, and Prometheus always delivers on its promises. Their people are highly experienced, and because the training they receive is aligned to our own, we know patients will receive continuity of care.Gary Firkins, De-escalation, Management and Intervention Service Lead, MPFT
“What you get with Prometheus is a premium service delivered with respect and compassion which can make all the difference to our staff and our patients.”
There is also collaboration between the two organisations when it comes to the training of staff. Prometheus adopts the de-escalation, management and prevention model, a holistic approach which focuses on risk assessment, care plans and non-physical intervention.
Training is delivered by senior trainers from MPFT to help facilitate a cohesive approach to patient care.
