Our Values

  • Working together for patients: Patients come first in everything we do and in every decision we make.
  • Respect and Dignity: We value every person—whether patient, their families or carers, or staff—as an individual, respect their aspirations and commitments in life, and seek to understand their priorities, needs, abilities, and limits. We do not discriminate based on race, colour, religion, gender, gender expression, age, nationality, disability, marital status, or sexual orientation.
  • We will support patients in caring for themselves and empower them to improve and maintain their own health. We recognise that a caring doctor may at times have to challenge and confront as well as listen and support.
  • Commitment to Quality of Care: We earn the trust placed in us by insisting on quality and striving to get the basics of quality of care – safety, effectiveness, and patient experience.
  • Compassion: We ensure that compassion is central to the care we provide and respond with humanity and kindness to each person’s pain, distress, anxiety, or need.
  • improving lives.  We strive to improve health, wellbeing, and people’s experiences of the NHS.
  • Everyone counts. We maximise our resources for the benefit of the whole community, and make sure nobody is excluded, discriminated against, or left behind.
  • We will not tolerate any form of abuse towards our clinicians and staff and will act quickly to address such behaviours in the most appropriate way. We are committed to the care of all of our staff and will promote a happy working atmosphere.
