People strategy

We want to work with our patients, carers, communities, partners and staff to continue to offer more innovative, community-based services.

Our strategic direction sets out our high level direction. The strategy is our map for the route ahead to make sure we stay strong in terms of the clinical services we offer, the money we have to run those services and how we can best support you.

The goals in our strategy are supported by our solutions and operating models.

Quality strategy

Our quality strategy 2017 to 2020 explains how we are delivering the quadruple aim of enhancing patient experience, improving population health, improving staff experience at work and reducing costs by increasing value for money and efficiency.
