Feedback from our 2021 Health Events

Quality Priorities – 24 February 2021

The Trust’s Chair Jo Palmer was pleased to welcome members to our first Members’ event of 2021.  The event was an opportunity to update members on progress with the Quality Strategy and last year’s Quality Priorities. Members then had the opportunity to share their views during breakout sessions on the proposed priorities for safe, effective and person-centred care for 2021/22. 

Jane Murkin, Chief Nursing and Quality Officer, updated members on progress with the Quality Strategy and Quality Priorities and introduced the proposed Quality Priorities for 2021/22.  Angela Gallagher, Chief Operating Officer, provided a brief overview of the Trust’s work to improve patient flow (the patient pathway from arrival, time in hospital through to discharge). 

A copy of the slides are available here and members will be kept informed of progress.

James Devine, Chief Executive welcomed the praise heard during the event and the progress made, and confirmed it was important to hear the personal experience of members whether that be a positive experience or a negative experience from which lessons could be learned.  There were areas about which the Trust should be proud – for example the Awards for periods of 150 days without infections – but there is always more to be done and to aspire to and he assured members of the Trust’s commitment to continue work to consistently provide the care the community deserves.
