Chief Executive’s blog – October 2018

Welcome to my fifth blog! As with every month since I became Chief Executive, this last month has flown by! Where has 2018 gone?! I keep hearing the ‘Christmas’ word being mentioned and it reminds me that there are only around ten weeks left before we are in 2019.

In this latest blog, I wanted to update you on where we are up to with our winter planning, what is going on nationally, our upcoming Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspections, and also share some details about some of the other things I’ve been up to in the last month or so. There are also details on how you can get involved and have your say – including further Tea and Talk sessions, LiA Big Conversations and the National NHS Staff Survey.

You can read my full blog by clicking here.

I’ve been continuing with my daily Twitter updates using the hashtag #NHSCEOfirstyear; you can find me @aaroncumminsnhs if you want to take a look.

As always, if you have any feedback, ideas or comments – please feel free to get in touch by emailing me at aaron.cummins@mbht.nhs.uk or on Twitter.

Aaron Cummins
Chief Executive
