Quality Accounts consultation on RNOH's 2011/12 priorities

All NHS Trusts are required by the Department of Health to produce a set of Quality Accounts each year. The accounts allow us to report to the public on our commitment to and progress on assessing quality across all of our services. Part of the process involves giving staff, patients and commissioners the chance to scrutinise the Trust’s performance in assessing and improving the quality of its services.

The accounts also set out our priorities for quality improvement during 2011/2012, and we would like your views on what these priorities should be.

The current potential priorities are:

  • Continue to monitor avoidable infection and maintain current low levels
  • Increase public and patient involvement in the design of the redevelopment to ensure it is fit for purpose
  • Develop and offer new clinical techniques through Research & Development
  • Respond to poor scoring areas identified in the patient survey to improve patient experience
  • Reduce pressure sore incidence

Please let us know your thoughts on our priorities or any others which you think we should include.

You can give your views by email to stuart.coalwood@rnoh.nhs.uk or by post to Stuart Coalwood, Clinical Governance and Risk Manager, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust, Brockley Hill, Stanmore Middx, HA7 4LP.

Please note the consultation closes on Thursday 12 May 2011.
