As we move into the next stage of the COVID-19 pandemic I'd like to use my message to describe the approach we are going to take to restore and recover services.
Safety for you and patients remains our absolute priority and we have set a new 'North Star' objective within the 'Together we Care' strategy and outlined a new operating model for the Trust that seeks to:
"End health and care acquired infections for the team, patients and the community we serve."
"North Star" refers to the aspirational nature of the goal - when you think of the way sailors view the North Star as a way to stay on course, no matter where they are. To achieve this we will need to work together and learn from practice across the organisation and beyond. We have been working with the wider leadership team to set in place the framework to achieve this ambition but of course it will require us all to follow the 4P values and in particular take personal responsibility.
