Trish Cargill ,Chair of the Trust’s Patient Partnership Group writes:
The Patient Partnership Group (or PPG for short) has an important role to play at NUH. It is a group of patients and staff who come together monthly to offer a view on Trust issues – to give a patient voice and to support the Trust in making improvements that make a difference to patients, their relatives and carers.
This month, by working together with staff we have:
- Thanked Danny Mortimer, the Trust’s Director of Workforce and Strategy for his commitment to involving and listening to patients during his time at NUH over the last 7 years. Danny has consistently fought to ensure the patient voice is heard throughout the organisation Danny attended the PPG meeting this month, with members thanking him for his contributions and wishing him all the best for the future. Danny takes up his new post as Chief Executive of NHS Employers later this month
- Offered valuable feedback on the Trust’s Cardio – Pulmonary Resuscitation Decision – Making Guidance for Adults suggesting greater prominence is given to the section on communication with patients and or their relatives
- Used feedback from the Carers surveys to plan further improvements to facilities for carers throughout the Trust, in line with our quality priorities to more effectively and consistently support carers
