Chief Executive’s Blog – March 2019

One of the things I’d like to spend some time on in this blog is the NHS National Staff Survey. The annual Staff Survey is perhaps one of the most valuable measures of how colleagues are feeling about working here in the Bay, so I’d like to share the results with you all and talk a bit about what they mean and what we are planning to do with the feedback.

I also want to update you on what the Trust is doing to prepare for Brexit; our refreshed strategy; and some updates on the national NHS Long Term Plan – as well as letting you know what else I have been up to in the last month.

You can read my blog by clicking here. As with previous blogs, I’d appreciate it if you could share it within your teams, especially with colleagues who do not have access to a computer.

I hope you find my blog useful. As always, if you have any questions, comments, suggestions etc., feel free to get in touch. I’m continuing to post regular updates on Twitter using the #NHSCEOfirstyear hashtag so do head over and take a look; you can find me @aaroncumminsNHS

    Hi, great idea. we have a band however i dont think it would be suitable as we are rock and pop. Although we do the occasional open mike session. Still rock and pop though.
    We are based in Heysham. Will you be looking to extend this to the RLI?

    • Ailsa Martin says:

      Hi Paul, we’re not too sure if/when we will be extending this to the RLI, however we will share updates on here and on the Trust’s social media if we do. If you’re interested in taking part in some sessions, you can always contact our Patient Experience team on PatientExperienceandFFTInbox@mbht.nhs.uk. Hope this helps! ^Ailsa

    Hi,

    I work in the programme management office at Salisbury NHS FT and would be really interested in finding out more about your model for advice and guidance at Morecombe Bay. Would it be possible to put me into contact with someone appropriate to discuss?

    Many thanks,
