WORKFORCE: The chief executive of Dorset Healthcare Foundation Trust has been going “back to the floor” and shadowing staff on the front line.

In his report to July’s board meeting, Paul Sly said he had recently spent time with the older peoples community mental health team, sexual health and school health/nursing and the health visiting service.

He said: “I continue to be impressed by the quality of support we are providing to people in the community and my afternoon shadowing a health visitor in Boscombe was particularly rewarding.”
