Medical director Dr Bernard Brett said: “We already deliver a high standard of healthcare, but want to raise standards even further for the benefit of our patients and are empowering frontline staff to propose new ways of working.

“We are calling on them to look at their working practices and think of one or more new ways to make a real difference to the safety of patients in their care.”
