Fran Butler, is Mental Health Programme Lead for the Oxford AHSN. Fran previously worked on dementia projects within the AHSN and her role now involves developing a mental health programme improvement and innovation programme across the region, in addition to the mental health work the AHSN is already involved in (including anxiety and depression and safer leave).

Fran will be working with trusts, STPs, ICSs, and industry as well as other AHSNs with the aim of improving mental health care and wellbeing across the geography.  This will involve identifying Mental Health innovations and connecting with industry as well as supporting Trusts, STPs and ICS plans. Patient safety projects within Mental Health will also be included in the programme.

As the AHSN covers the Thames Valley and Milton Keynes areas we are able to spread good practice in mental health services across this area as well as from other AHSNs nationally.  Additionally we are also able to connect those with ideas for innovations within CCGs/Trusts/ICSs to potential sources of funding.
