Our Strategy 2021 to 2026: Better Care Together – With You, For You

Our five-year strategy for 2021 to 2026 will take us on an exciting journey. We pledge to put people at the heart of our services, focusing on personalised care by asking ‘what matters to you?’ rather than ‘what is the matter with you?’

Our Mission is:

Enabling People to Live the Best Life They Can

Our Vision is:

Working Together to Provide Outstanding Care

This journey will include:

  • Developing services around the needs of our communities
  • Tackling health inequalities – unfair and avoidable differences in health caused by things like unemployment,
    poor education, race, disability, and where people live
  • Using technology to improve access and choice in how patients receive care
  • Improving our buildings to make them more efficient and a better environment for our patients and staff
  • Promoting quality improvement and innovation
  • Working towards university status with our Gloucestershire health and education partners
  • Being an environmentally proactive organisation working with our communities to tackle the health impact of
    pollution and climate change
  • Embedding co-production and engagement
Quality Strategy

We place quality at the heart of everything we do in order to deliver services and make a positive difference to our communities.

Full details of our Quality Strategy will be published here.

People Strategy

We want to create a culture that truly enables colleagues to deliver the best possible care and support services in whatever role or place they work. Compassionate and accountable leadership is key and we need to ensure that we develop both our current and our future leaders to ensure we drive this forward.

Digital Strategy

Digital technology will be a key driver and enabler for the Trust over the next five years. It will help us be efficient and effective, make better use of our precious workforce and help improve the experience and outcomes for service users, their families and the wider community.
