Our Vision

Our vision is to be renowned as the best integrated care organisation in the NHS.

Our Promises

We have developed a set of care promises to reflect how to expect our staff to treat patients, visitors and each other. The promises were developed by frontline staff who felt that even though we were providing excellent clinical care, we also need to provide great care, and that we were not doing that in every area all the time.

The nine care standards, or promises are: 

  1. I will...make you feel welcome
  2. I will...make time to listen to you
  3. I will...be polite, couteous and respectful
  4. I will...keep you informed and explain what is happening
  5. I will...admit to mistakes and do all I can to put them right
  6. I will...value your point of view
  7. I will...be caring and kind
  8. I will...keep you involved
  9. I will...go the extra mile
