Service Line management
From Monday 3 April South West London and St George's Mental Health Trust will move into a new service line management (SLM) structure.
We have been working with other mental health trusts across the country for some time and believe the move to SLM will universally improve the quality of care our patients receive.
This new way of working will enable our clinicians to take the lead on service developments and drive improvements in patient care. Services will therefore be delivered in a consistent way which benefit our patients and help us to be more effective and efficient.
The principle objectives we aim to deliver through SLM are:
- Leadership by clinicians: driving improvement to patient care
- Quality-focused healthcare: delivering better services for every patient
- Greater efficiency and productivity: guaranteeing good value for money
- Devolved decision-making: judgements made by our best health professionals
