Our commitment to quality

Our commitment to quality

Our commitment as a provider of healthcare has always been to best quality, best practice and best outcomes in everything we do.

Our priority is always to reflect this commitment to quality in the experience of our patients. We have long been at the forefront of the drive to improve clinical and non-clinical service standards across healthcare, championing the need for more transparent, accessible reporting.

It starts with the individual

Key to delivering the highest levels of quality care and service is the recruitment, training and monitoring of our teams. We recruit people with the best skills as well as a dedication to deliver the best care. We ensure they receive regular training and we frequently monitor their performance.

Constant scrutiny

We are committed to providing consistent, high quality service to local communities and regularly engage with our patients and service users to ask for their feedback. 

We use this feedback to develop robust action plans to ensure we have a programme of continuous improvement. We encourage openness and the honest reporting of any issues and, in the event of any performance or service shortcomings, we ensure a full and open review is carried out and shared widely.

We also know that we’re only part of the NHS story, and, if change is going to be useful and lasting, we need to work with our partners to make it happen. We are part of the Sign up to Safety scheme, designed to help realise the ambition of making the NHS the safest healthcare system in the world. Find out more about what’s involved in Sign up to Safety and read our pledges.

Leading the way

Whether we’re in the top ten of best performing hospitals for knee replacement operations or running endoscopy services that are considered among the best in the country, we don’t rest on our laurels, but continue to push the boundaries and challenge the traditions of healthcare delivery.
