Sir David Dalton provided an overview of the work that he has been doing at the Salford Royal and Exeter trust including improving seven-day services, standardising care where possible, improving reliability and creating a culture of teamwork and leadership. He spends four hours a month working with his staff to ensure that the work he does is relevant to staff working at the coalface.

Over 8 years Salford Royal has achieved 100% reductions in MRSA blood stream infections and grades 3 & 4 pressure ulcers, 83% reduction in dostridium difficile infections and a 48% reduction in cardiac arrests. For the 4th consecutive year they have rated in the top 3 for staff satisfaction.
