Most improved award for A&E waiting time
THE outstanding progress staff made
towards meeting waiting times in A&E has won Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS
Trust an award for Most Improved Trust in the North of England.
A&E at the Trust has been a consistent top performer in Cheshire and Merseyside
since the summer.
The award was made at a collaborative event in Leeds for NHS trusts earlier this
month by NHS Improvement (NHSI), the national quality and financial regulator.
Ailsa Brotherton, from NHSI, said:- "The team at Southport and Ormskirk
has delivered focused improvements and have won the award for the Most Improved
Trust in terms of their A&E performance during the collaborative. This is
impressive work against a backdrop of increasing challenges and increasing
demand. Huge congratulations to the whole team."
Dr Dave Snow, Associate Medical Director for Urgent Care at the Trust, said:-
"A&E is the most visible sign of a busy Hospital. We've shown how staff working
together across the hospital from the front door, to discharge and out into the
community can create great results for patients."
