Quality

Dorset HealthCare is committed to delivering high-quality care first time, every time, for everyone. We aim to nurture a culture that supports and empowers staff and patients alike, allowing us to provide care that is kind, compassionate, safe and effective.

The Trust's Quality Account (easy read) is an annual evaluation of the quality of the services we provide, and the programmes we have in place to continually improve our services.

It sets out the Trust's key objectives regarding quality, aligned to the Care Quality Commission's key areas of focus, which consider whether services are safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.

The Trust's commitment to quality is underpinned by our work to maintain and monitor clinical effectiveness, which ensures our work is evidence-based, effective and founded on the principles of good practice.
