Jeremy Hunt has lauded a NHS mental health trust for its dedication to patient safety after it “overhauled” its way of working.

The health secretary visited East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT), which provides services to patients in Tower Hamlets, on Friday to hear from patient safety leaders about their initiatives and what impact they have made.

A further 45 staff from different disciplines came along to highlight the increasing demands on patients and services in hospitals and the community.

Mr Hunt said: “Mental health professionals come from across the country to learn from the work of ELFT and it was great to meet the staff behind such a successful and patient centred organisation.

“The trust overhauled their safety culture after a series of events and by doing so put patients and every member of staff - from cleaners to consultants - at the heart of their safety measures with results that have turned heads across the NHS.”
