STRUCTURE: The south west London acute trust is considering its strategy over the next eight years.
Miles Scott, the new chief executive of St George’s, told the board at a meeting on 31 May: “At this time of unprecedented change in the NHS, the potential for change in how health services are organised in South West London through the Better Services, Better Value review and our recent decision not to pursue a merger with St Helier, the time is right to review our long term vision for the trust.
“I am therefore leading a programme of work, ‘St. George’s Healthcare NHS Trust – the next decade’, to review the trust’s strategy, goals and commitments until 2020,” he said.
“The programme will take a few months to complete and will include testing the emerging themes with internal and external stakeholders; we are currently preparing a draft corporate strategy for further discussion,2 Mr Scott added. “We will explore in more detail our clinical, capacity and capital strategies at our strategy seminar in June 2012.”
