EPUT has made an active commitment to involve patients and carers in decisions of care, treatment and policy making based off of lived experiences. PCREF is designed to ensure racialized communities have fairer access to services, improved outcomes and better experiences of services.
Patient Carer Race Equality Framework (PCREF)
Born from themes within the mental health act 2018 review; the Patient Care Race Equality Framework (PCREF) is an anti-racism framework designed to enable a fairer mental health system for people from racialized backgrounds. We need to ensure people from racialized backgrounds do not have worse experiences than other communities.
