Dzifa Aidam

Clinical Team Leader, West London NHS Trust

I am a clinical team leader on an ISAT/High Dependency ward with a capacity of 15 patients who have a diagnosis of personality disorder and mental illness. My role is to provide efficient quality care for patients. I work collaboratively within a multi disciplinary team and also provide support and inspire staff to achieve their potential. An example of this is that I am implementing a desensitisation plan to help a patient achieve a smooth transition to a rehabilitation ward.

I am looking forward to developing new ways of leading innovation, improvement and culture change in practice, working with people and values, using skilled facilitation that is enabling, helping both patients and staff to develop.

I am hoping to work creatively and systematically to achieve outcomes for practice by sharing innovations and learning widely to promote the spread of best practice with my multidisciplinary team.
