January 2016 UPDATE
The Sepsis project received funding of £100,000 as part of a successful bid to the Sign Up to Safety campaign. A sepsis nurse is now in post, guidance has been developed and training is being delivered in a variety of settings.
The maternity project was also successful in securing £250,000 to enhance training around fetal surveillance in labour as part of the Sign Up to Safety bid. There are now expert staff in place to support and develop the project. Training is underway and is both classroom and clinically based to help staff develop their knowledge and skills.
The Trust has now launched a pressure ulcer strategy and is working with staff, patients and community partners to prevent pressure ulcers in and outside hospital.
