Having the Chief Executive and Director of Nursing of Health Education England visit NELFT demonstrates that we are at the forefront of innovative practices and these will lead to us being able to provide care that is better for patients, as well as making the Trust more robust and better able to adapt to change.

“I was delighted to acknowledge the offer made by Sir Keith to organise a ministerial visit to NELFT to showcase the amazing work that we do. We will take this opportunity and those that avail themselves to showcase the Trust’s work nationally.”
