Patient involvement

We welcome feedback from patients through patient experience surveys and our complaints procedures. We engage with service users through forums such as our patient council. A nominated member of the patient council sits on some of our key committees. This means that the patient is part of the decision making process.

Risk reduction

Our risk reduction program looks at system issues that could lead to an adverse event. If we identify a risk we put proactive processes in place to lessen and remove the risk.

We have a dedication to continuous quality improvement. We are always examining our patient care processes and making sustainable improvements.

We communicate to staff the vital role they make to quality and patient safety.
