Create a mechanism for staff to create improvements

There seems to be no good mechanism for staff to suggest improvements and then see how these suggetions progress.  

an example model would be:-

- Submit suggestion

- Access to see if safe and affordable

- Trial


- Implement

Why the contribution is important








Staff on the front line can potentially be the most informed and best suited in terms of creating new and good suggestions to make improvements, they should be given a platform to do this from.

    This has been an option in the past, however when suggestions were made to managers that is as far as they went and were not always passed on and therefore not considered. While this is an excellent idea there has to be trust that suggestions will get to the right people, not be monitored and discarded before consideration by those who have asked for the suggestions.

     trained as a nurse from1964-1967 the year I qualified in Glasgow.Looking back now in my 70s.I have nursed in generalwards surgical ,psychiatricand orthopaedic theatre in Glasgow Royal Infirmary.Imust admit that the economic of cost issues never entered my head then.I gained a English National Board certificate 1993 care of the Newlands when it was a rehabilitation unit then.I have to say that paying agency nurse's and doctors should be looked into ,of course staff ratioi on the ward are the main priority otherwise the wellbeing of staff and clients suffer in the end.There is a lot to be said in bringing back the Matron way of overseeing how wards are managed.The public are well informed today which is great.Thanks to computer science.
