Patient Safety

The Trust is committed to delivering high quality and safe care in a safe environment to all our service users.  Our staff take their responsibilities for your safety very seriously and the Trust is always seeking to improve your experience.

We are committed to making the safety of our patients and the quality of their care our highest priority.  To do this, we promote and support patient safety in many ways.  Click on the headings below to find out more about what initiatives have been put in place to ensure our patients receive the highest possible standards of quality and safe care and treatment.

Since 1 April 2016, the Trust has been working with the newly formed NHS Improvement.  NHS Improvement is responsible for overseeing foundation trusts and NHS trusts, as well as independent providers that provide NHS-funded care. They support the Trust to provide patients with consistently safe, high quality, compassionate care within local health systems that are financially sustainable.

From 1 April 2016, NHS Improvement is the operational name for an organisation that brings together various organisations, include Monitor and national Reporting and Learning System, both of which were concerned with patient safety.
