Our Strategy Refresh FINAL - Flipbook - Page 13
We want quality to be the golden thread running through
everything we do. We want to be held up as an example of
an organisation that, when it commits wholeheartedly to
focus its energies to deliver improvements in quality,
becomes a beacon across the NHS in terms of improved safety
of care. We want to raise the bar each time and be
ambitious and innovative in how we deliver improvements in
quality so that we become an outstanding Trust.
Adopt and embed a continuous Quality Improvement
[QI] approach to how we change the way we provide
our services. This will keep patients at the centre of
what we do and ensure that services are efficient and
provide best value.
Reduce unwarranted clinical variation to improve
outcomes, using tools already available to us like
GIRFT & Model Hospital.
Create space to grow for the next 10 years and
beyond in areas such as Cancer, Maternity and
integrated and right-sized Front Door. We will
develop a master plan for the hospital site which sets
a direction for how services can develop in the years
ahead to meet growing needs and set out how,
through working with other providers in developing
new models we will be able to service those needs to
reduce reliance on acute hospital beds and other parts
of the system.
Reduce unnecessary delays and ensure only patients
that need acute care are in hospital. We will do this by
working with all areas of the system and develop out
of hospital alternatives.
Integrated pathways of care to create a more joined
up and proactive service. Focusing on Elderly and
those with Long Term Conditions to ensure they can
remain home for as long as possible, avoiding
multiple admissions and prolonged stays.
Develop outstanding services across the Trust and be
recognised by our peers for services such as
Cardiology, Respiratory Care and Intensive
Build a stronger voice for service users to shape how
we develop services and deliver care. We know that to
build better services we need to more closely involve
those who are directly affected.
Invest in leadership skills at all levels and attract new
talent through a refreshed workforce strategy.
We aim to be rated as Outstanding by the
CQC. We will take a big step towards this
by achieving a Good rating overall at our
next inspection in 2019/20.
