We, along with the whole NHS, are at a point where significant changes is required. With an increasing population and people experiencing more complex conditions than ever before, staff are under an increasing amount of pressure. It is widely recognised that existing ways of working will not be sustainable, and will no longer enable us to give the best outcomes for our patients.
We embarked on a period of substantial transformation in late 2017. We wanted to learn from best practice seen in other NHS Trusts and implement some of these successes locally, as well as build on the excellent work already taking place within our own organisation. We are always striving to improve and the challenge was to make this real and sustainable change.
