Strength means different things to different people. But to us it’s about being honest and having the strength to put our patients, their families and the people who work here first. That’s why we have listened to thousands of their experiences and ideas and turned them into action by creating – and launching – our Quality for all values and behaviours across the organisation. These are:
- Communicating and working together
- Aspiring and improving
- Respectful and caring
- Efficient and safe.
These values and behaviours are helping to shape the way we plan and make decisions in the way we recruit, induct, appraise and develop colleagues, but also help our patients and their families understand what they can expect from us. And as they’re based on our shared experiences, it shows a great strength in partnership. And a promise of a better future for us all.
If you’re a nurse who wants the support of the team that surrounds you, great training and development opportunities, the time to care for your patients and a good work-life balance, then read on. As that’s what we want for you too.
