The Dermatology department is a truly worthy winner of July’s Team of the Month award, marking its remarkable turnaround in performance over the last year.
Dermatology General Manager, Awais Habib, put the team forward for the award, citing the “hard work, goodwill and dedication” of staff in bringing the referral to treatment (RTT) waiting list down from 2,400 patients to 925 patients.
Despite managing consultant and nursing vacancies, the team improved its RTT performance from 75 per cent in October 2018 to 90 in June 2019. It has also improved its cancer performance which has had a positive impact on the Trust’s overall performance – with the two-week cancer wait now sustained at over 93 per cent.
“The team delivered has shown a collective ability to go the extra mile in making sure patients receive a high quality and safe service,” Awais told Let’s Talk. “It’s an incredible team and its hard work over the last 12 months deserves to be recognised.”
Congratulations to the Dermatology for a fantastic achievement!
