We have set out our plans for the coming year – and are investing millions in improving services.
Our Operational Plan, detailing our priorities for 2016/17, has been published.
It includes details of where millions of pounds will be spent to improve services and patient care at Queen’s and King George hospitals. More than £1million has been allocated to improving emergency care, with £1.3million being used to increase the number of diagnostic tests which can be carried out. The biggest investment - £12million – will be spent on improving planned care and cutting waiting times for treatment.
The document lists our priorities to ensure we deliver high quality care, including reducing the number of patient falls and improving the management of sepsis.
Fifteen objectives have also been set out, including:
- Ensuring the highest standards of infection control
- Embedding quality and safety systems
- Improving the delivery of constitutional standards.
Director of Planning and Governance Jason Seez said: “We have come a long way over the past two years, and this plan details how we will continue to improve services so that we can provide the best possible care for our patients.”
