People interested in improving the quality of healthcare in NHS Wales can comment and discuss key issues on a blog launched by 1000 Lives Plus, the national programme supporting organisations and individuals to deliver the highest quality and safest healthcare for the people of Wales.
The blog has already included posts on work being developed to improve services for stroke survivors after being discharged from hospital and the role of the NHS Wales staff survey in improving quality and safety.
“The blog will provide the opportunity to discuss quality improvement work being taken forward in NHS Wales,” says Andrew Cooper, Communications Manager for 1000 Lives Plus.
“Topics are being introduced by members of the 1000 Lives Plus Faculty and programme managers and we are lining up guest bloggers with expertise in quality improvement.
“Importantly, the blog will give all NHS staff the opportunity to comment and give their views. We hope these two-way conversations will engage new people and bring the improvement work to a wider audience.
“The input of staff is very important to 1000 Lives Plus as the programme seeks to serve the needs of NHS Wales organisations and provide support to all staff delivering care to the people of Wales.”
The blog is accessible at www.1000livesplus.wales.nhs.uk/our-blog and also from the programme’s home page.
