St Luke’s Hospice Quality Account

Report of the Policy and Improvement Officer.



Deborah Glen, Policy and Improvement Officer, introduced the report. As no officers were available to present the report, she advised that she would provide feedback to officers following on from the discussion at this Sub-Committee.




Councillor Ruth Milsom, Chair of the Sub-Committee, noted that there had been an ongoing focus on equality, diversity and inclusion, and the ambitions and evaluations in the report were welcomed, along with the detail around implementation of further improvements. She wished to congratulate St Luke’s Hospice on achieving an ‘outstanding’ rating, and was pleased to note that there had been a focus on wellbeing. She noted that it might be interesting to hear accounts from staff at St Luke’s Hospice and to share examples of best practice.




Members of the Sub-Committee provided additional comments, including praise of the thorough responsive action taken following the Post-Fall Protocol, and querying whether any support could be provided to the Hospice in terms of identifying funding.




RESOLVED: That the Sub-Committee:


(a)  notes the content of the report; and


(b)  undertake to provide feedback to be collated into a comment by Deborah Glen, and submitted by the deadline of 21 June, 2023.
