As a Trust we are looking at how we can make changes to cardiology, respiratory and elderly care services to improve the care we give our patients.
We give good care, but we know we can give better care to patients and want to do this as soon as possible. Working with patients, families and care providers changing these services will allow us to:
Make it easier for our clinical team to see more patients seven days a week
Medical division general manager, Lucy Pittaway, said: " We have so far held staff workshops and feedback from them was really positive. There is a real feeling that people are engaged and on-board with the moves."
She said the benefits to come from the reconfiguration would include:
This has also given our staff chances to raise their concerns so that we can make sure we can address them
We will be continuing to have regular workgroup meetings for each specialty - cardiology, respiratory and elderly.
If anyone would like to be involved in them please ask them to contact Lucy Pittaway for Cardio or Resp and Jess Mannion for Elderly care.
