University health board and police partnership work commended

Partnership working between Hywel Dda University Health Board and Dyfed Powys Police has been commended.
Mark Rhys-Owens, Ward Manager of St Caradogs Mental Health Acute Admission Ward based in Haverfordwest received a Commendation Award for Partnership Working from Superintendent Richard Lewis of the Pembrokeshire Division of Dyfed Powys Police.
The commendation was in recognition of his partnership work with the Police in respect of missing and absconding persons from the Unit.
Andrew Homfray, Acute Care Service Manager, said: “Mark has been instrumental in developing processes with the Police, which have benefited both organisations, but more importantly increased the welfare provided to mental health patients. Well Done to Mark and all the Staff involved in this partnership work in Bro Cerwyn.”
T/Police Sergeant Dale Scriven, added: “Mark and I meet on a monthly basis and strong links have been formed. He has been instrumental with me in reducing the amount of missing persons from the ward by over 35% which greatly assists response policing.”
