We are working with staff across our Trust to bring you a new series of case studies focussing on how we are making improvements to:
• Patient safety
• Patient experience
• Operational excellence
With a huge range of improvement work going on in our Trust, our case studies will focus on a range of improvement projects. In the series, we’ll hear from Trust staff who’ve been involved in improvement work, overcoming barriers and making a real difference.
The examples shared will also offer tips, aiming to inspire professionals both in our Trust and in the wider NHS.
A case study will be shared every fortnight on this webpage.
We’ll also share them via our internal communications products (like The View and The Headlines) and also across social media, using the hashtag #allofusimprove
If you have an idea for a case study or want to know more, please just get in touch.
