Quality care

The Trust works to make sure that ‘quality’ is at the heart of everything we do. By ‘quality’ we mean making sure everything that we do is focussed on providing patients with the best possible care and experience.

We want to make sure all of our patients get compassionate care, care that keeps them safe and care that is effective in helping them with their condition.

Building on the existing work that has taken place since the formation of the Trust in July 2011, the Trust has identified a number of priorities for the year, aimed at making sure our services are the best they can possibly be.

Setting quality priorities

  • We have worked with patients, members of the public, staff and other NHS and local authority partners to make sure that our priorities address their thoughts, concerns and aspirations for community health care

As a result, the Trust's Quality priorities for 2017/18 are:

  • Continue our work to be a provider of good or ourstanding Caring, responsive, Effective, well Led and Safe services for our patients using quality accreditatiob and assurance tools
  • Improve the discharge from hospital experience
