Corporate Objectives

Our vision is to be a consistently high performing and financially sustainable Trust by 2020.  

Our corporate objectives for 2016/17 set out how we are working to deliver this ambition.

Make improvements in quality and safety so we are one of the best performing Trusts in the country.  This will include:

  • Improving performance for cancer patients so we meet the NHS standards for providing timely treatment
  • Working with partners to ensure everyone who needs emergency care gets treatment in a timely manner across the health and social care system.
  • Maintaining our performance in meeting the 18-week referral-to-treatment standard.
  • Putting into place the national recommendations for improving maternity services across the country (published in the National Maternity Review, published February 2016)

Improve patient experience and offer greater choice and personalisation.

Improve staff experience to support attraction and retention, and reduction in use of agency staff.

Deliver the trust’s financial target for 2016/17 as we move towards a balanced budget position by 2020.  Our goal is to become one of the best performing Trusts in the county for efficiency and managing our resources.

Ensure our workforce is resourced and deployed effectively to meet the needs of patients at evenings and weekends.

Make the best use of technology to benefit patients and staff across the health system.

Work with partners to get the best usage of local NHS estate. Our priority is making improvements to the estate at QEH to ensure it is safe and fit for purpose.

 Work with our partners to develop a shared vision and plan for the future of sustainable local health services to meet the needs of local people.
