Mike Wright, Executive Chief Nurse - Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals

“At Hull and East Yorkshire we are using, primarily, the Safety Thermometer benchmarking information produced by the Improvement Academy from the Patient Safety Dashboards.  Not only is it easy to cut and paste into Trust Board reports but it is also really helpful in setting the context of the Trust’s potion in relation to others.  In addition, this produces additional assurance as the information is collated fully independently of the Trust.  Non-Executive Directors find this especially helpful and it helps to frame the Board’s discussion around relative performance.  The Improvement Academy is looking to develop the range of things it can report in this way, all of which will be very helpful to trusts. 

Also, Michael and the team are extremely helpful and willing to listen to and respond to requests.  I hope more people will give the Improvement Academy their support.”
