Annual Report and Accounts 2018/19
Welcome to our Annual Report which covers the financial period from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019.
Reflecting upon my first full financial year as Chairman of Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals, I feel privileged and proud to serve such a skilled, dedicated and hard-working organisation.
There is no doubt that the last year has been another incredibly busy one, during which we have faced the challenge of an ever increasing demand for services whilst maintaining high standards of care. During this year, we have also worked tirelessly with system partners in Surrey Heartlands to move towards better, more integrated ways of working. Vitally, we have now secured the financial means to invest during the next two to three years in the infrastructure and in the digital systems necessary to improve significantly the care and services for the local population.
Welcome to our Annual Review for 2018‑19, which provides an overview of the last year at Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals.
Despite sustained challenges over the year and unprecedented demand for services, especially over the winter months, colleagues throughout the Trust responded amazingly well and continued to strive to deliver the best care.
We made excellent progress in becoming a learning organisation. This is starting to have a real impact. The medication safety improvement programme, for example, has resulted in a significant and positive reduction in the number of medications safety incidents.
