This includes reviewing the benefits that this could bring to our health services and patients in East Dorset and the wider population. Both organisations believe it is essential that the high quality hospital services we provide for our patients are maintained and improved over the coming years in the more challenging economic environment facing the NHS. It is clear that the NHS needs to think differently about how services are developed, delivered and managed. Within the local area the NHS needs to work together through creative and innovative approaches. The initial work will assess the potential benefits of reconfiguring clinical services and look at other opportunities for closer working between our two organisations. As well as reviewing what benefits can be achieved as individual NHS Foundation Trusts, we will also explore if there is any benefit in pursuing a formal merger between the two Trusts to maximise quality improvements, meet future workforce challenges and provide real benefits for our patients and local taxpayers.

New colourful MRI scanner improves patient care A new multi-purpose MRI scanner is improving the patient experience and improving diagnosis even further at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital. The scanner projects a range of colours into the x-ray room which creates a calm atmosphere for the patient under diagnosis and is being used for a wide range of examinations such as cardiac MRI, neuro imaging, orthopaedics and cancer imaging. Bike to Work Week The Magnetom Aera System also provides a better, more detailed image allowing Radiographers to emphasise subtle differences in the scans and help identify any concerns previously not seen as clearly by earlier technologies. Patients respond to drive changes The Care Quality Commission (CQC), the independent regulator of health and adult social care services in England, has published its findings of its 2010 adult inpatient survey. The survey of adult inpatients involved 161 acute and specialist NHS trusts, including the Royal Bournemouth Hospital, and received responses from more than 66,000 patients. To read the report and find out what our patients are saying about us and how we compare to others, please visit http://rbhintranet/ppi/2010pdf/ cqc.pdf. (internal link only). Please share the report with your teams as we look forward to moving things forward together. The report shows areas where we are doing well, including giving patients written information about what they should do when leaving hospital, as well as areas where we can improve. One area reported for improvement was the noise at night, and we now have ear plugs available for patients as appropriate. How we are supporting our patients Over the past few months we have been ensuring we respond to the feedback within CQC reports. For example, patients are given bookmarks with contact numbers on discharge to ensure they are supported when they leave hospital. Patients are also given experience cards so that they can give their feedback and we can continually improve the experience for others. They also receive a copy of their eIDF (electronic discharge form). Using our patient feedback we have made good progress throughout the year and we hope for this to be reflected in our next report. The next survey is for patients who stay overnight during July. If you have any ideas on improving the patient experience at the Trust please contact Sue Mellor on ext 4253 on [email protected] Your Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) A new advice and counselling service is now available for our staff, provided by Right Corecare.

Pedal along the prom Members of the Trust’s Future Workforce Funded programme celebrated their achievements and welcomed new starters to the successful scheme. Many of the previous young people on placement have gone into further training posts at the hospital, such as Apprenticeships, while others have used their experience to progress in other fields. Congratulations to all those who participated in the programme and good luck to all the new recruits who will be on placement for six months. On Tuesday 21 June, as part of the Trust’s Bike Week, eight members of staff got on their bikes to pedal from Sandbanks to Bournemouth Pier to Boscombe Pier and finally finishing at the RBH for their free breakfast before starting work. Hope on the horizon New scales for Thoracic Patients having respiratory function tests in the Department of Thoracic Medicine are benefiting from new scales. Donated by Breatheasy, the scales mean that patients can be tested more quickly, and also prevent patients with breathing difficulties from having to walk to scales located elsewhere. Staff Nurse Emily Young will be packing her bags and setting off to West Africa this November to spend three weeks providing post anaesthetic support to patients on the Mercyship vessel, the world’s largest non-governmental hospital ship. Buzzword would like to wish her the very best on her trip.

Sustainability Carbon reduction is everybody’s business. It not only contributes towards the environment but can result in massive savings for the Trust which can be reinvested in to patient care. Recognising this, the hospital has invested in a Sustainability Manager to help us save money and the environment! Buzzword met up with Laura Skinner find out more about her role. What is your background? I have been working as an environmental practitioner for over four years since completing my Masters in Integrated Environmental Studies at the University of Southampton. My previous roles have included working as an Environmental Business Advisor for the Environment Centre and as a Sustainability Coordinator for University College Falmouth. A large part of my experience has been raising awareness of environmental issues and the importance of carbon reduction at work and at home. What projects are you currently working on? The NHS, as one of the largest employers in the world, has an important role to play in reducing carbon emissions, a key cause of climate change. In January 2009, the NHS developed the ‘NHS Carbon Reduction Strategy for England’ in which it sets targets for reducing its 2007 carbon footprint by 10% by 2015. In response to this RBCH have adopted these targets and developed the Sustainable Management Plan. You can access the Plan at www.rbch.nhs.uk/carbon. As the Sustainability Manager I am responsible for ensuring the smooth delivery of the Sustainable Management Action Plan. I will be working with key individuals throughout the Trust to identify ways in which we can reduce our carbon. How can staff help you? The Trust’s carbon reduction targets are going to be a challenge, but one that is achievable with everyone’s help. Staff can help us to achieve the NHS carbon reduction target through small behavioural changes in their day to day activities. The following all help to reduce energy waste: ideas that you may have on how we can reduce energy use and carbon emissions across the hospital. What do think will be the best part of your role? I imagine it will be the positive contribution towards ensuring that the Trust is able to reduce its impact upon the environment by taking a proactive role. Implementation of carbon saving projects will reduce the amount we spend on energy, allowing that money to be reinvested into patient front line services. You can contact Laura at [email protected] or via extension 4373. • turning non-essential equipment off when it is not needed. • setting computers into standby mode when they aren’t being used. • switching off lights when you leave a room.

I am keen to work with staff and would be very interested in any RBH passes random care quality inspection The Trust was part of a programme of 100 unannounced nurse-led inspections requested by Health Secretary, Andrew Lansley. This formed a part of a review looking at how well older people are treated during hospital stays. The report from the Care Quality Commission focused on whether patients were treated with dignity and respect and whether nutritional needs were met. The report found that RBH was meeting standards in both areas. Health Minister, Simon Burns said “I am pleased to see that our inspectors found RBH to be treating patients well and setting a good example for those who can do better to improve the quality of care they provide.” 7 Committed to equality Equality means treating everyone with equal dignity and worth, irrespective of any personal characteristics. The Trust is committed to ensuring that people do not experience inequality through discrimination or disadvantage, imposed by other individuals, groups, institutions or systems. We have produced a new draft Single Equality Scheme which includes a four year action plan that will be continuously reviewed, progressed and developed. We would welcome comments and feedback from you. The Scheme will be regularly reviewed, progressed and updated.

Cancer Open Day is a success On Monday 11 July, the hospital welcomed the public to an insightful Cancer Services Open Day that attracted many interested visitors. The purpose of the Open Day was to support the launch of the National Cancer Strategy ‘Improving Outcomes, a Strategy for Cancer’ and to raise awareness of cancer in the community. Specialist talks were held throughout the day and consultants were on hand to answer questions. In addition, there was also a variety of information stands available throughout the day run by both cancer specialists and individuals who have previously lived with cancer. An award for the most attractive stand was presented by Tony Spotswood, Chief Executive to LYLAC (Live Your Life After Cancer) group. Sue Higgins, Cancer Manager commented: “The quality of the stands was incredibly high and there was a real commitment from staff to make their contributions as interactive and engaging as possible. “I would like to thank everyone who participated and attended, particularly Sue Bastow, who was responsible for much of the planning and work that goes on behind the scenes.” Ask the Execs - any question you’d like Have you got any questions about the Trust that you would like to ask our Chief Executive? ?

DJ Jay Rachet from Fire FM raised spirits while onlookers were welcomed to the seafront by a large crowd dressed in pink, some in fancy dress.
