Policy Management Graduate Trainee 2017 Intake, NHS

Hi Megan,

While I worked at a mental health Trust for my second 6 month placement I was involved in developing and writing s business plan for a community service called Recovery College.

I really enjoyed working with the Recovery College as I got to work with very inspirational and competent people: both colleagues and people who have lived experience of mental health issues and using services. I'd recommend checking out the Recovery College model at ImROC website. We did a lot of what is called co-production.

The process of developing a business plan was interesting because it wasn't always straight forward or obvious what the next step was. I learned that it's as much about the conversations and relationships built to convince people of the plan as about the formal presentation and written plan.

I hope that helps. I also recommend reading the blogs.
Best, Laura
