South Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (SEPT) is holding a public meeting of the board of directors at 10.30am on July 29 at Wrest Park, Silsoe.

The agenda includes a presentation on the SEPT CQUIN Programme and the impact on SEPT Patient Experience 2014/15. SEPT launched a broad range of Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (CQUIN) projects in 2014/15 aiming to increase the quality of service user care and experience. In total, the Trust was tasked with implementing a total of 58 schemes across mental health, secure, learning disabilities and community health services within Bedfordshire, Luton and Essex and Suffolk. The presentation will summarise the impact of the programme for patient experience.

The presentation will be followed by an award ceremony to congratulate a number of SEPT employees nominated for an award as part of the staff recognition scheme.

SEPT is one of the largest and most successful NHS providers in the country of integrated care including mental health, learning disability, social care and community services. As an NHS Foundation Trust, SEPT is run locally, not by Government, and must work closely with the local community to develop services in a way that best suits the needs of local people.

Anyone who lives in Bedfordshire or Luton, Essex or Suffolk and is over the age of 12 is eligible to become a member of the Trust. You can join by calling the membership office free on 0800 023 2059 or by logging on to www.sept.nhs.uk
