Our Corporate Strategy
Corporate Strategy consultation complete
Feedback collected during a consultation into our draft Corporate Strategy has shown that the public value EEAST’s staff and the clinical competence of our services.
During October and November 2019, staff, patient representatives, volunteers, STP colleagues and charity and emergency service partners were given the chance to comment on the strategy, which sets our priorities for the next five years for providing safe, high quality care.
As well as commenting positively about our staff, people who responded also 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.
Action is already been taken in response to many of these comments. The feedback will also be used to help shape the final Corporate Strategy, which is due for publication in April.
