Our Vision and Values

Our Vision and Values

Our staff engagement results are pleasing and show three consecutive years of improvement. We know that engaged, well supported staff deliver safe care and this is evidenced in our results. 

In our 2018 staff satisfaction survey, we had the best overall engagement score in the East Midlands for acute (hospital) Trusts, with staff rating us as the best acute Trust in the Midlands for both the quality of care we provide, and as a place to work & receive treatment.

We continue to provide safe, personalised care to our patients and many quality indicators continue to improve. We work closely with our partners in health and social care and have again delivered our financial control total and our cost improvement plan.

Patients on cancer pathways and diagnostic pathways continue to receive timely care but the timeliness of care on the emergency care and elective care pathways has deteriorated over the last 12 months. We know why this is and improving this is a key organisational priority over the next 12 months.

In the coming two years we will focus on three key areas:

• Working with partners to promote health and wellbeing and supporting people in their homes for as long as possible
• Providing safe, personalised care through our three hospital sites, in particular on the emergency pathway
• Working with partners to discharge patients in a safe, timely way

All of this will be underpinned by high levels of staff engagement. We want to provide safe, personalised care to local people, with every patient treated as if they are a member of our family. Delivering this supports our commitment to outstanding care.
