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 2020/21.
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.
Catherine Morgan, chief nurse at ESNEFT, said: “We want to make sure we are always delivering safe, effective services and the best possible experience for every patient receiving care in our trust. We are asking our patients, staff, the public and stakeholders to help us do that by sharing their views on the areas they feel we should focus on during the next year.
“We would encourage as many people as possible to take a few minutes to fill out the short questionnaire and help us make sure we are concentrating on the things which matter the most to them during 2020/21. What you tell us will make a difference.”
The questionnaire is available here and runs until Friday 28 February.
ESNEFT’s board will take all of the feedback received into account when making a final decision during March. The quality priorities will be published in the summer as part of the trust’s annual report.Back to top
