Better Care Together – New Strategy Launched by Trust

May 11, 2021 | GHC, Gloucestershire, News

A new five-year strategy has been officially launched by the NHS Trust which provides community health services in Gloucestershire.

‘Better Care Together: With You, For You’ is the strategy to be followed by Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust until 2026.

Ingrid Barker, Trust Chair, said: “We began developing our strategy – Better Care Together – before our Trust was formed, in October 2019. We involved our colleagues, people who use our services, carers, volunteers, members, partners and an array of other organisations to ensure it reflects what really matters to the people we serve.

“At the heart of our strategy and what will guide us for the next five years is our vision – Working together to provide outstanding care. Most importantly, the strategy will help us achieve what we set out do from the very formation of our Trust – tackle inequalities and integrate physical health, mental health and learning disability services, so that we support our communities to be healthy and well, whatever their circumstances, throughout their lives.”

Paul Roberts, Chief Executive, said: “Better Care Together includes a clear Mission – enabling people to live the best life they can. People are at the heart of everything we do – both the people we support and the people who work in the organisation. We cannot achieve our mission alone and we are grateful to everyone who has helped develop our strategy and pledged to work alongside us as we deliver our ambitious plans for the next five years.”

The strategy sets out four strategic aims, each underpinned by measurable, specific goals and objectives:

  • High Quality Care
  • Better Health
  • Great Place to Work
  • Sustainability

The strategy can be viewed in full on our Trust website.
