Some difficult decisions as well as opportunities to celebrate have been faced by the Partnership. The on-going challenge of clinical cover has meant we had to enact contingency measures in our Primary Care Emergency Services overnight. A tough decision to reach but one that ensures patient safety which is our first priority. We thank the public for their patience and understanding.
Across the Partnership there is much to acknowledge including the three Fife nurses who have been selected to become Queen’s nurses, our award winning Care At Home Team and most recently the announcement of a £10m care village in Methil.
Ahead of the new Carer’s Act going live on 1 April, we conducted a consultation to develop a Carer’s Strategy for Fife. Over 250 unpaid carers took part. Check out our Guest Blog by Scott Fissenden, Change Manager and Carer’s Strategy lead.
What Matter’s To You Day takes place on 6 June and staff and users of services are being asked to share their stories on how we can encourage ever more meaningful conversations between people who provide health and the people, families and carers who receive services. This will help to continually improve our service and the people’s experience of care.
We are also supporting Save a Life for Scotland’s ‘I would press 500 times..’ campaign which is asking everyone in Scotland to get ready to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
