RiO stars


People who use learning disability services at the Horizon Centre in Wakefield are enjoying new art equipment as a thank you for designing the Trust’s ‘RiO stars’ certificates.

RiO stars are members of staff who show particularly good practice in record keeping on RiO, which is the main system used by the Trust to maintain electronic health records for all people in receipt of care.

Maintaining the records accurately and in detail is important in supporting the delivery of quality care and a good service user experience. It’s also important that we record all the interventions we provide to evidence that the care we offer meets recognised standards and best practice. We try to continue to improve our record keeping all the time and have set up the RiO stars initiative to recognise good practice.

Our first RiO Stars were recognised in November 2012 and they received certificates designed and presented by people who use our learning disability services.

The gifted art equipment was presented to occupational therapist Lizzy Osbourne by deputy chief executive Alex Farrell and portfolio manager Rachel Brown. Among the supplies were sugar paper, glue sticks, paper shapes, felt tips, pencils, paints and sponge shapes.
