Our Trust Strategy 2023 - 28

Our Trust Strategy 2023-28 is available here. If you require a copy of the Strategy in an alternative format or language, please email

Our vision is that together, we will deliver the best care when you need us most.

To achieve this, we have set out a five-year Strategy. It sets out what we will focus on in the short and longer term. For the next two years we will be focused on stabilising – we aim to deliver effective patient care, safety and performance, while also working more closely with our partner organisations. During the later years, we will use patient insights to continuously improve our service, and enhanced ways of working across the system to deliver integrated and co-ordinated care for our 999 patients.

We have four strategic objectives that support us in achieving our vision:

  • Our Patients: To consistently achieve quality driven, high performing, patient centered care
  • Our People: To create the conditions for our people to thrive
  • Our Partners: To be a valued partner improving health outcomes together
  • Our Organisation: To create a sustainable and progressive organisation that’s data and digitally driven


We will continue to share updates at our Public Board meetings, more information on these can be found here.
