NHS Trust launches new staff strategy

Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has launched a new initiative to support its staff to further improve the quality of care they provide in hospitals and in the community in Northumberland and North Tyneside.

Already one of the country’s top-performing organisations and widely recognised as having one of the NHS’s best patient experience programmes, the trust has launched its ‘quality strategy’ which gives its 9,000 staff a clear focus and reflects the importance and commitment the organisation places on quality of care.

It aims to ensure that quality of care underpins every decision taken by staff and to provide the safest health and care services to patients in hospital and in the community and for the trust to be recognised as a caring organisation locally, regionally and nationally and to attract, retain, support and train the best staff.
