Our strategy 2018-2023
We are delighted to share our vision for the next five years by introducing our new strategy, which describes how we will meet increasing demands, think differently - and create and take opportunities to integrate with partners.
Having a strategy is crucial for our Trust. It provides a picture of where we are heading as an organisation with milestones along the way, to help us check we are achieving our plans and to take further action if needed. It doesn’t seek to describe every single action we must take, but it does describe our broad general direction of travel and importantly it begins to describe our ambitions for our Trust. Being ambitious is important for our Trust, for each of us but most importantly for our patients.
The challenging environment facing us presents an opportunity for us to do this in new ways, working across traditional boundaries and seeking innovative solutions that will help all parts of our health and social care system become truly integrated around the needs of our communities. We also know that the role of the hospital is changing, and we recognise the part we must play in preventing ill health. Providing great care is the result of thousands of daily human interactions and the efforts of individuals working across multi-disciplinary teams.
In this strategy we describe how we will support our staff to do this. We celebrate diversity whilst recognising our collective strength. This strategy will guide us through the transformation required to deliver this alongside our values which remain constant. We always put patients at the centre of everything that we do.
