Vision, Goals and Values
It is important that Pennine Care has a vision that everyone can understand and support. It sets out how we believe high quality patient care can be achieved.
In order to deliver our vision we must uphold our Trust values - click here to read more about our values.
Our vision and values clearly set out how we will deliver the best care and how we work with patients, carers, the public and with other partners to develop and improve care in the communities we serve.
In support of our vision and values, we also have a set of strategic goals, which act as overall priorities that steer the organisation in the right direction.
To give the best care, we have to provide a ‘whole person’ approach. If we effectively look after a person’s health, lifestyle and wellbeing in combination, we will be able to help them to live well and more independently.
Demands for care services are growing, patient needs are more complex and finances are shrinking, so we need to radically rethink how we provide and deliver care in order to be sustainable and meet patient needs. But we cannot do this by working alone; we must work with all of our partners and care providers in each locality to develop a solution for everyone.
Our five year strategy: 2016-2021
As much has changed within health and social care over recent years, we have updated our strategy to ensure we have a clear focus and direction of travel for Pennine Care.
The strategy is working towards the delivery of whole person, place-based care. This broadly means we want all of our patients, carers and families to receive care that meets all of their mental, physical and social needs, but that this is arranged according to the needs of each town we service – Bury, Oldham, Heywood, Middleton, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside and Glossop and Trafford.
A summarised version of the strategy can be viewed here.
Over the next five years, Pennine Care will continue to work with staff, partners and our patients, carers and families, to shape and change services to ensure we deliver whole person, place-based care.
