AIMS and AIMS-OP Accreditation

Accreditation for Acute Inpatient Mental Health Services (AIMS) and Acute Inpatient Mental Health Services for Older People (AIMS-OP) form an important part of the improvement and development strategy for acute mental health inpatient services.

AIMS and AIMS-OP have been adopted by the Trust and are one of the main drivers for change in the organisation.

Staff need to be mindful of the standards and expectations of AIMS and AIMS-OP during the course of their day-to-day work and future planning.
