Rowcroft Hospice Quality Account 2019/2020
Published annually, Rowcroft’s Quality Account gives detailed information about the quality of services provided by Rowcroft Hospice to our patients and families. It explains what our organisation is doing well, highlights progress on last year’s priorities for improvement, and outlines key development areas for the coming year.
The quality of our service is measured by reviewing patient safety, the effectiveness of patient services, and feedback about the care we provide.
Our Five-Year Strategy
Our latest strategic plan sets out the steps we need to take over the next five years. We believe that specialist, quality care should be available to everyone who has been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness. We want to extend the reach of our services, while meeting the expected increase in demand, and maintaining our high standards of care. To achieve this, and retain the hospice’s independence, we need to build sustainable income streams.
