Standards for Better Health Declaration

Posted on 31st March, 2008

As part of the Healthcare Commission (HCC) Annual Health Check process for 2007/08 the Trust Board has agreed a draft declaration of compliance which will be submitted to the HCC formally in April. Key staff  have led the evidencing of progress against each of the standards and across all core domains - safety, clinical and cost effectiveness, governance, patient focus, accessible and responsive care, care environment and amenities and, finally, public health. The Trust intends to declare a position of compliance against 39 of the 41 standards and a position of insufficient assurance against two standards.
