Our Corporate Strategy

Corporate Strategy consultation complete

Our new Corporate Strategy, outlining the Trust’s priorities for the next five years is due to be published in July 2020.

During October and November 2019, staff, patient representatives, volunteers, sustainability and transformation partnership (STP) colleagues and charity and emergency service partners were given the chance to comment on the draft corporate strategy, which outlined our priorities and vision for providing safe, high quality care.

The feedback and comments were overwhelmingly positive and showed that the public really value EEAST’s staff and the clinical competence of our services. The findings have been used to help shape the final document, which is due for publication this summer.

As well as commenting positively about our staff, people who responded told us that they felt EEAST should:

  • Focus on our core 999 service and making sure we consistently deliver timely care.
  • Ensure that our staff feel valued and supported, with an emphasis on wellbeing and mental health.
  • Provide long-term stability within our leadership so that we can ensure our Trust is well-led.
  • Improve training and development to help our staff reach their full potential.
  • Take additional steps to become greener and reduce our environmental impact, such as by recycling more widely.
  • Develop initiatives which equip the public, and especially children, with basic first aid skills, while also working more closely with partners to promote public health and prevention.
