Please note, the survey has now closed.
The last few years have seen big changes across healthcare and the NHS. We have seen even higher demand for our urgent care services and many more people coming forward for care, which has further increased existing elective waiting lists. We have also started to see the effects of a tougher economic climate on NHS budgets and workforce, and the new Health and Care Act signalling a move to integration across systems.
As a Trust our priorities and the way people can and want to receive care has changed and we need to ensure our plans over the next few years meet those demands as well as our wider NHS goals as we recover from the pandemic.
This year we will be launching a new five-year Trust strategy which will outline how we will respond to the current climate that we are working within. It will summarise our vision, our values, and our five strategic priorities. Each priority will also have key operational goals, which will be updated each year when we set our trust-wide operational plan.
You can find out more details of the five strategic priorities we are setting ourselves here.
Patients are at the heart of what we do at SASH and that’s why we want your feedback on our plans so far, and our operational goals for the year ahead.
You can submit your feedback via the survey below, which will close on Wednesday 19 May.
Remember to look out for the launch of the final strategy this summer!
