Our values guide the way we work every day from board to ward. We want to make our services the best they can be for our patients, workforce and partners in the community.
Each value has a series of behaviours behind it that we’re building into everything we do, from our appraisals to our policies and procedures.
Kindness and compassion cost nothing, yet accomplish a great deal.
We’re respectful to everyone and are open, honest and fair.
We set goals to achieve the best for our patients, teams, organisation and partners.
We're stronger and better working together with and for our patients.
The NHS Constitution
The NHS belongs to the people. It is founded on a common set of principles and values that bind together the communities and people it serves – patients and public – and the staff who work for it. This is called The NHS Constitution for England.
