As one of the first mental health & learning disability NHS Foundation Trusts in the country, we are consistently recognised as a leading provider of dedicated health and social care services.

The Performance Department is responsible for ensuring that the Trust continues to be one of the leading mental health and learning disability trusts and for ensuring that the Trust meets national standards and targets set by the department of health.

Public Quality Dashboard

One of the recommendations of the Francis Enquiry into events in Mid Staffordshire NHS was that Trusts be more transparent, allowing true information about performance and outcomes to be shared with staff, patients and the public.

We have developed this Public Quality Dashboard to give our service users, their families and carers, and anyone else who has an interest in our services, the opportunity to see how we are performing. We have chosen indicators that we believe are relevant to our service users and also align with our Trust Quality Priorities to ensure that we provide care of the highest standard.

We have chosen an initial set of indicators, but these will change and develop over time, in line with our quality priorities, and also with regulatory requirements.

Since Q1 2016/17, we have been  investigating ways of reformatting the dashboards to bring them into line with new NHS reporting requirements.
