Quality Goals and Quality Priorities

Quality Priorities 2017-18

The Trust is considering potential new Quality Priorities for 2017-18 

Each year, new quality priorities are developed to support our 3 overarching Quality Goals (encompassing safety, service user & carer experience, and clinical effectiveness), while also remaining committed to carrying forward any quality priorities from the previous year that have not been fully achieved. 

Three proposed new quality priorities for the coming year have been identified, based upon themes that emerged from:

  1. engaging with service users and carers, staff and other stakeholders, via a workshop and online survey in December 2016.
  2. reviewing themes arising from complaints and incidents, and
  3. reviewing the areas for improvement identified by the CQC both from their 2016 comprehensive inspection of the Trust and also from their ongoing programme of Mental Health Act Review visits to inpatient wards. These are: 

The Trust is seeking your comments on the appropriateness of tehse three suggested new Quality Priorities, namely:

  1. Do you agree that the proposals reflect the highest priority areas for improvement currently?
  2. If not, what issues would you have liked to have seen prioritised for each domain?
A short survey has been designed to seek your views and can be found by clicking here. The survey will be available until Friday 3 March 2017.

Fully drafted versions of the proposed 2017-18 quality priorities, taking into account comments received during this engagement process and including progress milestones, will be considered by the Trust Board on 22 March 2017.
