Getting to Good
The Isle of Wight NHS Trust is on a journey to get to ‘Good’. That means looking at all the ways we can improve our care and services for the benefit of both our patients and our staff.
In April 2017, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) told us we must improve the way we deliver care, and we have been committed to turning things around ever since.
Our aim is to get to an overall CQC rating of ‘Good’ by 2020. We’re confident that by engaging and supporting our staff to contribute to the delivery of the IIF and to develop improvement ideas of their own – as well as by working closely with our health and social care partners – we can achieve this. We can get to ‘Good’.
And that’s why we’ve called our improvement programme ‘Getting Good’. Click here to view our latest Getting to Good Year 2 booklet.
