Chelsea and Westminster has launched a ‘Bright Ideas’ campaign to canvass staff and patient feedback on where we can improve efficiency and add value for money.

The campaign aims to generate 3,000 ideas which could improve how we work and help us be more efficient. We have already received more than 250 ideas—and we want to hear yours!

What Can YOU Do?

Staff and patients can help by giving us your best ideas to reduce inefficiencies that you see every day and supporting one another to challenge wasteful practices.

Many of you already do this and we want you to continue and spread the good practice—no individual or practice at any level is unchallengeable!

Ideas can be big or small or could be a new idea we haven’t thought of—no idea should be dismissed as too unusual or extreme—it may open up thoughts and conversations which leads to an idea which is very reasonable and easy to implement.

It is important to understand that our success as a Foundation Trust has been built around our ability to be self-sufficient in our capital programme.

This has meant new facilities and equipment for patients such as our new Chelsea Children’s Hospital.

We want to continue with that so we can provide the best for our patients and staff, we need to make sure we deliver the surplus required, as well as ensure our sustainability as a Trust.

We have a bright future which we must protect and we know you will give your full support to making this happen.
