With a Start Up Grant from THET staff visited Gulu in 2012 and the Gulu Sheffield Partnership was founded. It is a group of organisations in Uganda and the UK who are aiming to improve the support available to people with mental health problems. It embodies a two- way learning process involving state provided services and voluntary organisations/ NGOs, using a Training of Trainers model
In Uganda this involves the Gulu Regional Referral Hospital (GRRH) and in particular the Mental Health Unit, the Gulu District Health Office and Gulu University. The Partnership communicates with the Ministry of Health in Uganda and the Uganda UK Health Alliance to ensure the Partnership works with Ugandan priorities.
In the UK the Partnership is hosted in the Sheffield Health and Social Care (SHSC) NHS Foundation Trust and is partnered with: The University of Sheffield School of Health and Related Research (SCHARR) and the Sheffield Health International Partnerships (SHIP), a Registered Charity ( similar to an NGO)
What does the Partnership do and what is the story of its work?
The Partnership has a Patient Safety focus and works with the GRRH and the District Health Office providing training and supporting staff and in working with the wider community.
