Success for the Trust on NHSLA Assessment!
The Trust has been successful in attaining Level 2 compliance against the NHSLA Risk Management Standards for Acute Trusts.
This assessment took place on 9th – 10th December and involved staff from every Division and corporate service.
The Risk Management Standards for Acute Trusts have 5 standards each having 10 criteria, the 5 standards are: -
2. Competent and Capable Workforce
3. Safe Environment
4. Clinical Care
5. Learning from Experience.
At Level 2 the Trust had to demonstrate that all relevant policies were adequately disseminated and implemented and compliance to the minimum requirements of the 50 criteria, the Trust scored 44 out of that possible 50.
This is an immense achievement and demonstrates that the organisation continues to improve in the safety and quality of services delivered.
