Helping people keep well, caring for people to get well

Reflecting on all we have learnt through the pandemic, ‘Shaping our Future Wellbeing 2023 – 2033’ sets out our ambition to tackle the deep-rooted health inequities that exist within and between our communities, enable people to keep well, and deliver outstanding services to those who need them, when they need them.

To shape this strategy, we listened to people who use our services, our local communities, our teams and our partners and we are very grateful to everyone who took the time to share with us what was important to them.

We have reviewed the feedback and now we are asking you to share your thoughts on our proposed strategy.

Working together we will improve health, reduce health inequity and aspire to deliver excellence so staff, patients and populations have the best outcomes and experience

Our Vision

Our Values

These sit at the heart of everything we do.
They reflect the culture we want to work in and guide how we work every day.

To be

Kind and Caring


To have

Trust and Integrity

Personal Responsibility

Putting people first

We will be an organisation which is a great place to work, learn and be cared for and where we listen to and empower our communities and colleagues

Providing outstanding quality

We will be an organisation that is committed to continuous learning and improvement which delivers the best advice, access, experience and outcomes for all our patients and communities

Delivering in the right places

Care will be provided in the right place, in facilities that are fit for purpose, wherever possible enabling people to receive the care they need in, or closer to, their own homes

Acting for the future

We will be certain that our services are designed and provided to ensure that the needs of the present do not compromise the needs of our future generations and that we help develop and take advantage of new technologies, treatments and techniques to provide the best possible advice and sustainable care

Working in partnerships

We will develop integrated health and care plans across our systems to ensure that our models of care are sustainable and meet the important needs of our local, regional and, for some services, national communities
