Open and honest
As a Trust, we have made the commitment to be more open and honest with our patients, visitors, staff and the general public. We believe that this is how a modern NHS Trust should be - open and accountable to the public and patients, and always driving improvements in care.
To ensure that the public and patients know how we are performing as a Trust, we are one of a number of NHS organisations who have pledged to be part of the Open and honest care: driving improvement programme.
This programme supports organisations to become more transparent and consistent in publishing safety, effectiveness and experience data; with the overall aim of improving practice and culture.
Each month, we will publish data on a set of patient outcomes, and patient and staff experience.
We will also share what we have learned with other care providers in our area to identify where changes can be made to further improve care.
To help make sure our information is as accessible as possible, and to support involvement in our work - we make every effort to use plain English wherever possible.
To further aid understanding about our work, please find a glossary of commonly used abbreviations and NHS specific language.
CQC update their profiles of care services for older people in every local authority in England. The reports are available to download.
