Some staff members, known as safeguarding champions, act out made-up scenes for their colleagues, which show poor practice in settings such as a café, a living room and a bathroom.

The situations are then discussed to consider issues surrounding confidentiality, medication, restraint and physical and psychological abuse.

Nurse lead Sue Medley said: "We wanted to improve quality across the service, and this peer training was thought to be a good training model".
