Vision, values and behaviours

Our values strapline


We engaged our staff, members of the public and stakeholders about the core values they feel the Trust should hold and demonstrate to colleagues, patients and stakeholders.

The core values determined from this work are:

  • Caring – ensuring quality of care is at the heart of everything we do
  • High standards – taking responsibility for providing the best services and patient experience
  • Improving – we always look for ways to improve what we do. We encourage involvement, value contributions and listen to and positively act on feedback
  • Respect – showing value and respect for everyone and treating others as they would wish to be treated.


We also have eight behaviours underpinning each of the Trust’s four values, making 32 in total.

We continue to work with staff and public representatives to ensure these values are reflected in everything we do. If you have any ideas or would like more information please email
