Our Trust Your News February 2019

News FromYour Chief Executive

Welcome to this year’s first edition of Our Trust, Your News and all the latest news, events and photos from what has already been an epic first month of 2019.

Our maternity services have long been held in high regard by the mums, children and families we serve, a fact that was confirmed in January when the Care Quality Commission published the results of the CQC Maternity Survey 2018 (page 3). The Trust achieved its best ever results – we’re rated 9th best in England – and this wonderful achievement is true reflection of the excellent service provided by the maternity staff at our birth centres, hospitals and in the community.. Well done everyone. A strong theme in this month’s magazine is evidence of the positive partnerships we have with local organisations and our local communities. Learning and Development have teamed up with The Prince’s Trust (page 19) and local Job Centres (page 7) to get more young people into employment with ELHT, while the new Children’s Ward playground (page 8), supported by Euro Garages Group, is taking shape. During a typically busy start to the year, our physiotherapists were in the media spotlight when the BBC broadcast the new NHS Long Term Plan (page 5), there was a first for our pioneering Cardiac Cath Lab team (page 12) and also news of ELHT’s achievement in winning a major contract to provide diabetic eye screening (page 14).

Elsewhere, we have launched a new Food and Drink Strategy for 2019-2022 (page 11) and there are plenty more examples of ELHT success with our latest Employee of the Month (page 7), delivery of a fantastic ride-on car to help children going for surgery (page 13) and lots more news from our hospital charity, ELHT&Me (page 9). Enjoy reading your staff magazine. Until next time, Kevin evin McGee , Chief Executive
