Summary of Paper:               The annual PEAT assessment was carried out on the 19 March 2009.

                                This year, for the first time in a number of years, the Trust was allocated an
                                external validator.     The following areas were assessed for cleanliness,
                                environment, infection control, access, food service, privacy and dignity.

                                          Spinal Cord Injury Centre
                                          Jackson Burrows Ward
                                          Ward 4
                                          Paediatrics
                                          Adolescent Ward
                                          Alan Bray Unit
                                          Outpatients
                                          Coleman Unit

                                Improvements noted this year was the installation on the majority of the wards of a
                                standard design curtain enabling easier change over/cleaning. A new window
                                cleaning contract is in place.

                                The external validator commented on two issues to do with the food service – no
                                portion control possible with Steamplicity and no garnish on the plate.

                                The patient’s representative also commented on the lack of privacy in the OPD
                                clinic rooms and the fact that conversations could be overheard from the adjoining
                                clinic rooms.

                                The Trusts score this year is Good for Environment, Good for Food and Acceptable
                                for Privacy & Dignity.

                                Although the results are still favourable, the Food and Privacy and Dignity scores
                                are down on last year.
