Secretary of State for Health and Social Care visits NNUH
Mark Davies, Chief Executive of NNUH, said:
“We were pleased that Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, was able to visit the Hospital today, to meet a cross-section of our staff and talk about some of the improvements that are being made, particularly in relation to quality and safety in patient care.
The Secretary of State heard that in addition to being one of the most efficient Trusts in the NHS, NNUH also has very low rates of infection and a mortality rate below the average. This was also an opportunity to show Mr Hunt some of the innovations that our clinical teams have implemented such as the Older People’s Emergency Department and a nationally funded project to improve safety in child birth.”
