Help us improve the quality of our services

East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust (ESNEFT) is asking patients, carers, the public and staff to help choose its key areas for improvement (which are also known as ‘quality priorities’) for 2022/23.

The Trust, which runs Ipswich and Colchester hospitals as well as a range of community services, has developed nine priorities and is asking for people’s views on which they feel are the most important so that they can be taken forward and given extra focus during the year.

Giles Thorpe, chief nurse at ESNEFT, said: “We are committed to providing safe, effective services and the best possible experience for all of our patients who are receiving care at one of our hospitals or within the community.

“We are asking our patients, their families, the public and our staff and stakeholders to help us decide our priorities so that we can make sure we are focusing on what is important to the communities we serve in the year ahead.

“I would like as many people as possible to spare a few minutes to complete our short questionnaire. Your input will make a real difference and we look forward to hearing from you.”

The questionnaire runs until Monday 24 January.

ESNEFT’s Board will take all of the feedback received into account, with the quality priorities published in the summer as part of the trust’s Annual Report.

People can also use the same survey to help the trust to develop its Quality Strategy for the coming years by sharing their views on the things which are important to them.

This feedback will be used to draw up a strategy which will highlight how ESNEFT intends to continue delivering safe, effective, high quality patient care.
