Our vision, behaviours, purpose and objectives
Working in partnership to provide the best healthcare for communities, leading and supporting our teams to move 4ward.
Our 4ward Behaviours
All staff across the Trust are asked to adhere to our 4ward Behaviours. These are the heart of our 4ward programme - a long-term, far-reaching initiative which aims to help colleagues across our Trust collectively work together, as we tackle the challenges we face and make the most of the opportunities that the future will bring.
Our focus going 4ward is twofold. We want to transform our culture whilst at the same time improving our performance across the whole of Trust, particularly around our wide-ranging quality improvement programme, improving the flow for patients who attend our Emergency Departments, our preparations for winter and our efforts to achieve financial stability.
Our aim is to have all our staff positively demonstrating these behaviours and working together to achieve our shared goals.
Making the Trust a better place for our staff, our patients and our local community is the ultimate goal of 4ward, so we want everyone to focus on how we behave, what we deliver and create a culture we can all be proud of.
