Trust to test new practice.

A WELSH hospital trust has been chosen to pilot a new management practice to reduce clinical errors and improve efficiency.

Cardiff and Vale NHS Trust will trial a new way of management as part of a strategy to turn around the NHS.

The trust was singled out by the Institute of Quality Assurance to take the action, which ultimately aims to help health managers to save money and improve the quality of health services offered to patients.

IQA director general Frank Steer said, ``Investing in individuals and getting the best possible value from support services has to be the number one priority of the NHS, and how hospital trusts choose to get the best from their resources is key.

``By getting the Cardiff and Vale NHS Trust to maximise the quality not only of its clinical procedures but also its support services, time and money will be saved, errors will be greatly reduced and ultimately more lives will be saved.

``More doctors and other medical staff are on their way, but it takes a long time to recruit and train them.''
