Quality Matters: our clinical and quality strategy

The Trust worked with staff to develop an evolving quality and clinical strategy throughout 2014.  This informed the development of the new Quality & Clinical Strategy, 'Quality Matters'.

Through consultation events and feedback through the staff survey we have refreshed our vision, values and behaviours and this has led to us doing some further updating of our strategy.

Our clinical service and quality strategies have been combined in a single document 'Quality Matters' which sets out the priorities and principles for developing our services and delivering our quality aspirations in the future.
