Last week I was pleased to meet Neil Carr (Chief Executive of Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust) and his team at the Haywood Walk-In Centre.
A remarkable journey the Trist has been on over the past 18 months. I was delighted to hear that when the Care Quality Commission came and inspected the Urgent Care in December 2019, they deemed the service has improved and moved the rating from Inadequate to Good.
I was also pleased to hear from Staffordshire Clinical Commissioning Groups that the Haywood Walk-In Centre will be one of four hubs for integrated care. This holistic approach to care will enable to see better outcomes for patients and builds upon the other excellent facilities provided, like the specialist neuro-rehabilitation.
