2 Sherwood Forest Hospitals - Our improvement plan & our progress What are we doing? The Trust entered the special measures programme and was selected following the higher than expected mortality rates at the Trust at the time, these are now within the expected range The Trust has been given a variety of recommendations. The initial Keogh Rapid Response Review identified 23 actions, 13 of which were classed as urgent. All these actions were deemed either Assured or Partly Assured by the Keogh Assurance review in December Subsequently the Trust has been re-inspected by the CQC, April 2014, who recommended to Monitor that the Trust remain in Special Measures for a further 6 months The Trust agreed an initial summary action plan to deal with these. The Trust has developed an action plan to address the issues raised in the CQC report and combined these with the actions from the Keogh review recommendations. We recognised all of the recommendations and are addressing them through current actions being taken to improve the quality of services. We envisage that improvements will be implemented and sustained in order for the Trust to be removed from Special Measure when re-inspected by the Chief Inspector of Hospitals. The Trust will set out a longer-term plan to maintain progress and ensure that the actions lead to measurable improvements in the quality and safety of care for patients. The key themes of these recommendations are summarised by the headings below: Strengthen assurance processes and outcomes Leadership Accountability Safe Effective Caring Responsive Well - led This document shows our plan for making these improvements and demonstrates our progression against the plan. While we take forward our plans to address the recommendations, the Trust is in ‘special measures’. Oversight and improvement arrangements have been put in place to support changes required. Weekly Quality Improvement meetings, chaired by the Director of Nursing monitors the milestone plan and the outputs from task and finish groups. Evidence is submitted to provide assurance the action has been implemented. Monthly reports to Trust Management Board, Quality committee and Trust Board ensure oversight of the implementation. This document represents the Trusts initial response, detailed actions and progress. The Trust has a process in place to develop these over the coming months to give a more holistic view of improvements, demonstrating increased consistency and accountability together with reductions in variation. 2
