Our Values

At the heart of 'Together as One' are our four 'Proud to CARE' values we have agreed with our people, patients, partners, governors, volunteers, NHS Foundation Trust members - plus the many members of the public who also contributed their thoughts and ideas.

Proud to CARE illustrates our commitment to compassion, ambition, respect and encouragement - in everything we do for our patients and each other every day.

Treating everyone with kindness - welcoming diversity and inclusion, considering individual needs; and challenging inappropriate behaviours outside of our values.

Aspiring to be the best - reaching high standards, providing exceptional care and services; and achieving measurable improvements in people's health and wellbeing.

Valuing and appreciating everyone - listening, learning and acting on their experiences. being open and honest, and recognising that working with others brings benefits.

Opportunities for all - supporting education and development, helping people to bring their improvement ideas to life and to speak-up; and getting everyone involved in our future.
