Our Values

Our aim is to be a world-leading orthopaedic hospital with the best patient care and staff experience in the NHS. To do this, we have four core values that underpin everything that we do. We use our values to help ensure that we are always focused on the things that our staff and patients believe are most important.

Our values are:

Patients first, always

  • We are courteous and welcoming
  • We make people feel valued and show we care
  • We are open to improving the way we work
  • We are positively involved in our work

Excellence, in all we do

  • We celebrate success
  • We encourage others to reach their potential
  • We deliver quality
  • We hold ourselves to the highest standards

Trust, Honesty and Respect, for each other

  • We treat each other the same as we treat our patients
  • We value our colleagues
  • We work as one team and are supportive of each other
  • We find ways to manage our stress

Equality, for all

  • We are respectful of others
  • We are always fair
  • We are consistent in how we deal with people
  • We are flexible and adaptable

VAL-YOU Campaign

In 2016, we launched our VAL-YOU campaign, which is our concerted effort to make our Trust the best place to work in the NHS. The evidence shows that if we can improve the experience staff have at work they will provide better patient care, be more innovative and drive sustained positive change.
