Dear Wareham, Wool & Bere Regis! Well it has been all go in our house with Hayden settled into his new middle school. We are back Edition 101 to swimming lessons, brass band practice and homework!

Focus on Francis Poole, the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch hospitals provide respected and highly regarded NHS care to hundreds of thousands of patients in east Dorset every year. In national assessments and reports, these hospitals consistently perform at a high level against a range of key standards and quality indicators. Comprehensive surveys of patient views also paint a positive picture of how hospital care is viewed by those who receive it. Achieving these high standards requires a continued commitment to quality from the board of directors to the wards, and a sharp focus on providing truly patientcentred care. The tragic consequences of losing sight of these basic objectives were highlighted earlier this year in a damning report which examined the causes of substandard care provided by Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust. The Francis Report, published in February, marked the culmination of a year-long public inquiry into the systemic failings at that trust, and sent reverberations throughout the NHS and further afield. At the heart of the report, its author, Robert Francis QC, called for a re-emphasis on ensuring the needs of patients come first. So how did hospitals in east Dorset respond to this report? At Poole, the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch hospitals, it provided an opportunity to re-evaluate the fundamentals of how quality care is delivered and whether genuine emphasis was placed on each and every patient and their individual needs. In short, were they getting the basics right? The report’s 290 recommendations were reviewed in detail as a matter of urgency in order to provide assurance that the failures identified at Mid Staffs could not be repeated here. Each hospital also held a series of listening events, providing an opportunity for more than 300 staff working in a wide range of roles to discuss the Francis Report with members of both trust’s management boards. In addition, patient and public involvement groups were

Wareham District

asked to give their views on the report and the care offered at their local hospitals. Understanding individual patient experiences and where care exceeds or falls short of expectations is vital, says Martin Smits, Director of Nursing and Patient Services at Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. “It is all too easy in the wake of the terrible stories which emerged from Mid Staffs to forget the excellent work taking place in the NHS,” said Martin. “Locally, we know from national surveys that our patients rate both our hospitals highly, which is a huge encouragement to us and spurs us on to deliver even better care and service. “What I believe is essential is peering underneath these headlines, to look at the factors that make an individual patient’s experience in hospital good, and where it could have been improved. “We can only do that by listening to patients and our staff.” Paula Shobbrook, Director of Nursing at The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, agrees. “No one knows more about what is happening at the forefront of patient care than those responsible for delivering it and those receiving it,” said Paula. “These experiences and viewpoints - good and bad - are essential in order for us, as board members, to know how we are doing. “Trust boards receive a vast amount of information on quality and performance. Coupling this with the views of staff, as we have done through our post-Francis Report listening events, and the experiences of our patients, provides invaluable insight. “Our ‘putting patients first’ commitment is just that - it’s a highly visible declaration that our aim is to ensure that at all times our focus remains on our patients and nothing else.” Martin cites Poole Hospital’s longstanding commitment to patients - the Poole Approach – as a key factor in ensuring standards at his hospital remain consistently high. “The Poole Approach may have been introduced more than a decade ago, but its central tenet has never been more true - ‘patient centred care with dignity and respect for all’,” he said. Whichever way this commitment to the needs of patients is packaged, both Martin and Paula are in complete agreement on one issue - when it comes to high quality care, complacency is simply not an option.

Country House Fair, Lulworth Castle Community News

Thursday 17th October 2013 - 10.30am to 3.30pm Dorset’s Country House Fair returns to Lulworth Castle on Thursday 17 October 2013.

With all corners of the Castle crammed full of quirky, vintage, novel and contemporary gifts and accessories, there is every chance of finding that stylish and unusual something that you simply can’t live without. ‘We’ve scoured the country to source unusual and occasionally useful items! The fair and its food hall present a rich choice of crafts, textiles, jewellery, accessories and local produce. It’s a good place to shop for those hard to please friends and relatives while supporting a worthwhile local cause’ said Mrs Sally Weld, who in her 20 years as Vice President and now a Patron of the Dorset Red Cross has seen more than £55,000 raised for the charity. The Country House Fair, now in its 8th year, supports the British Red Cross and, because all the costs are met by the Weld Family and Lulworth Leisure, all money raised is donated to the Dorset branch of this national charity. L i g h t re f re s h m e n t s a re available in the Castle during the Fair or nearby at the Weld Arms and Past and Presents Gift Shop and Tea Room.

A Brief History Of Crossways Travel Crossways Travel Group was started in September 2010 by a local couple living in the village of Crossways. They started because they believed there was a need for enhanced local transport in the villages of Crossways, Broadmayne, Puddletown & Tolpuddle. As time passed they realised just how popular they were becoming and expanded to pick up in Bere Regis, followed by Dorchester and Weymouth and soon afterwards Wyke Regis and Portland. They are now also picking up in Bridport, Swanage, Wareham and Wool and many more places! Crossways Travel Group proudly made various charitable donations to many local organisations from any profits accrued. In April 2012 the name was changed to Crossways Travel and the group was changed into a company because of its popularity. Its aim is to offer the same quality tours at value for money prices without compromising on standards. All coach tours whether day tours or Holidays are operated to the same high standard with an experienced driver, executive coach, and a knowledgeable Tour Manager. Crossways Travel say they aim to give you an experience nothing short of exceptional & judging by their feedback they keep to their word! If you are looking for coach hire for your group or society they can also arrange this, with the same high standards and you can even have a tour manager or alternatively, you can book your group on one of their tours and get a generous group discount. Crossways Travel offer high quality, fully escorted Day Tours and Holidays at prices hard to beat. They also operate a free mailing list & brochure request. Call them today on 01305 851697 or check out their website on www.crosswaystravel.co.uk or visit your local tourist information office for a brochure.

Adventures of Nellie

The Adventures of Nellie The Purbeck Publications Camper Van Nellie, the Purbeck Publications travelling campervan took us through wonderful English rolling countryside to North Dorset this month. The views on route really are magnificent. Hayden would love to be a pilot he tells us, so we thought we would drive to the airfield and take a look at the idyllic setting of Compton Abbas. There is in fact a caravan site right there. You need to be a member of a caravan club to stay, and although we didn’t stay this time, it is certainly one we will revisit and make the most of in the future! Compton Abbas is set in Thomas Hardy country whose work was very much influenced by his rural surroundings. The airfield itself is 800 feet above sea level with 27 miles of gorgeous views on a clear day. On the way there we passed Horton’s Tower, which is a folly built in 1750. A folly is literally a building built by the rich for no purpose other than to look at and admire! This tower is 140 feet tall and was built by the Lord of Horton

‘Phesant Alley’ - we saw about 10 all told Manor who was an architect and also an MP for Dorset between 1745 and 1786. Nowadays I found out, the tower is used by Vodafone to hide mobile phone masts! At least the folly has finally been put to use. It is also a way to help preserve the old building. You can see Nellie here with the folly in the background. Continuing on our journey to Compton Abbas we drove through tiny lanes, that Nellie’s thighs could only just manage. One lane Stephen nicknamed ‘Pheasant Alley’ due to amount of pheasants crossing the very narrow road! You really are ‘out in the sticks’ and I have to say I like that after a busy week working. On arriving at the airfield I thought we wouldn’t see many planes taking off as the weather had been pretty mixed, but to our delight the sun started shining and we did indeed see about 10 planes take off and land. It is really exciting! There are many different types of small planes and I

Nice spot for a lovely cuppa!

The restaurant’s lovely outdoor area

suggest you take a look at their website www.comptonabbasairfield.co.uk to get a full flavour of all the men and women ‘in their magnificent flying machines’… We have some photos for you here to give you an idea.

We had a great day out. Stephen is looking at treating Hayden to a flying lesson for his Birthday (shush…don’t tell Hayden!). To our surprise we learned you can be as young as 7 to fly your own plane… with a trained pilot of course! This will either make Hayden more determined to become a pilot, or maybe he will decide to take a different career after all. I wonder which?

There is a restaurant at the site which has a great reputation for home made food. You can go for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea. Wine is also on the menu. Group bookings can be taken and, with fantastic views of the countryside and the runway where the planes take off and land, it would be an ideal place for a special occasion! In fact on this trip we saw someone having a 50th birthday celebration.

As always we enjoyed our picnic in the van with the whistling kettle… it wouldn’t be the same without it. So where will Nellie go next? See in next month’s issue of The Wareham District Directory! By Debbie Corney
