  1. Showcasing our successes on ITV Tyne Tees with Helen Ford

Yesterday we were joined by a news crew from ITV Tyne Tees to discuss our current A&E performance successes.

Helen Ford spoke with Dr Deepak Dwarakanath and Mr Kevin Moore about the current four hour standard, and what emergency care might look like under the new standard we are currently piloting.

You can see the clip from the ITV Tyne Tees 6 o clock news piece here.

  1. Have a coffee and a chat with the Chief Executive

Yesterday Chief Executive, Julie Gillon met with staff for a coffee and a chat at the back of the canteen in the University Hospital of North Tees. All staff are encouraged to come along and share their team’s successes or raise any particular issues you feel are affecting the Trust at the moment.

Julie will be talking about the session in more detail in her blog next week, where you will be able to read about the key themes discussed if you weren’t able to make it along.

You can read more about it on Facebook here.

  1. The innovative Trust using technology to deliver better care for patients

North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust are using TrakCare supplied by InterSystems to quickly access  patient records, embracing its ‘digital first’ ethos to keep patient information safer than ever.

The Trust teamed up with TrakCare to create a video highlighting its successes so far.

You can read more on the website here and in the Hartlepool Mail here.

  1. Leading Health Service Journalist visits Trust to learn more about great work
    On Tuesday, Shaun Lintern, Bureau Chief at the Health Service Journal spent the day with people from across the Trust to learn a bit more about our pioneering initiatives and our biggest successes.

Spending time with Assistant Director, Tony Naylor he was given a live demo of the CareScan+ system before being shown around the Integrated Urgent and Emergency Care Service by Louise Johnson, General Manager.

  1. Embracing new challenges to improve patient care
    Last week we announced the successes of the latest 100 day challenge taken on by the Trust. Focusing on moving some surgery lists over to Hartlepool and utilising time and space more efficiently, there were some fantastic outcomes across the board.

The Hartlepool Mail picked up on the tale of success and shared it with our local communities.

  1. #BowelCancerAwareness month
    April is Bowel Cancer Awareness month and we are reminding you all of the importance of taking part in screening. It’s key in preventing bowel cancer and in helping to catch the cancer early for a much higher chance of survival. Catching the disease early means it can usually be cured. As a nation we are embarrassed to talk toilet habits, but it’s something we have to change if we want to impact this cancer and more positive outcomes. There are over 42,000 diagnoses every year affecting both men and women, but we can impact those numbers.

You’ll see the campaign on our social media over Easter weekend – help us get the message out there by sharing the posts you see!

  1. GP Networking and Engagement Event

Our Trust holds quarterly GP engagement events to link up with colleagues across our primary care network. The next date for the diary is Wednesday 24 April 2019 at the Middlefield Centre at University Hospital North Tees. This is an opportunity for colleagues to hear about the services we provide here and create excellent working links. If you know of a GP that would be interested in attending – please share the link here…
