Our vision

Kingsway Apple 2

The Trust’s vision was updated in June 2016 to reflect the ethos of the strategy and the ways of collaborative working we are looking to introduce as part of our commitment to working in partnership with the wider health care economy.  

The Trust vision is:

To provide services that meet the needs of the individuals and communities we serve, working with our people and partners to achieve a collaborative approach.

Our strategic priorities

Our vision is supported by four strategic priorities, which outline the experience we want our patients and their families to have. These are that:

  1. We will deliver quality in everything we do providing safe, effective and person centred care.
  2. We will develop strong, effective, credible and sustainable partnerships with key stakeholders to deliver care in the right place at the right time.
  3. We will develop our people to allow them to be innovative, empowered, engaged and motivated. We will retain and attract the best staff.
  4. We will transform services to achieve long-term financial sustainability.


These strategic priorities represent the direction of travel, and the things we must do to achieve our vision. They will help us to become better across all service areas and allow us to stand out from other providers.

Our values

In addition to the strategic outcomes, our vision is underpinned by four key values, which were developed in partnership with our patients, carers, staff and wider partners. See the Trust values page for more details.

Our core care standards

To support our values, the Trust has developed a series of Core Care Standards. These enable all teams to have a consistent way of planning and delivering care, whilst recognising the needs and standards of particular services and the people they serve. The standards aim to increase quality and safety and apply to everyone who uses our services. Resources that support the standards all have the apple 'quality mark' on to indicate this.
