Difficult decisions are part of the job, but in Hillingdon we’re empowered to make them post-qualification and to trust in what we’ve learned. When a young girl who’d been sectioned was discharged, I had to take some very complex issues into consideration to achieve the best outcome for her. While we usually try hard to keep families together, I recommended she move into semi-independent living as her home environment had triggers for her mental health. I got the full support from my line manager, and 18 months later she’s managed her tenancy, maintained a relationship with her family, and is starting university next year. My manager gave me the backing I needed, and the confidence to act on my instincts.
