Our vision is to support people in our communities to live happier, healthier and more hopeful lives. We aim to achieve this through embedding our core values of kindness, fairness, ambition and spirit in everything we do.

In moving towards our vision, we have clear goals and ambitious plans for how we will achieve them. Our strategic goals are to:

  • Consistently deliver the highest quality of services we can.
  • Ensure we are using the full potential and talent of our staff, patients, carers and families.
  • Transform and improve our services.

We have set out four key commitments in order to achieve our goals:

  • Quality: To place compassionate, continually improving, high quality care at the heart of our work.
  • People: To create the right culture and environment within which people can be the best they can be, enabling them to flourish in their field.
  • Services:  Transforming the services we provide together with our partners and communities.
  • Efficiency: Eliminating waste, reducing duplication of effort and making the most of our resources by spending less.
