Vision and Values
Together with partners, we will provide high quality, person and family-centred community services, as close to home as possible.
The vision is designed to stress a number of really important aspects of our work – these are:
- Working with partners is key – we will only achieve the best outcomes for our patients if we do this
- High quality – we should always aspire to be the best
- Person and family-centred services – this means that each individual or family deserves their own, tailored service. There’s no one size fits all
- As close to home as possible – the bread and butter of what we do, because patients do better and respond to care better, when they are at home.
The core values of Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust were developed in partnership with over 1,000 members of staff.
They represent a commitment to our patients and community that the decisions we make will be in the best interests, and influenced by, the people we serve.
We care for our patients, their families, each other and the community.
We are a community of professionals dedicated to providing the best quality healthcare for the community.
We collaborate across disciplines, with patients and the community to ensure best possible health outcomes.
We have the courage to deliver care to communities and groups that present significant health and social challenges. We develop and try new solutions to tackle healthcare problems.
We show commitment in our work, taking personal and team responsibility for our actions. We encourage and support our patients in taking responsibility for their health.
Better careImprove the way we deliver care through clinically-driven change and a culture of continuous improvement and compliance with our regulators
Better healthImprove the way we provide care by empowering clinical leaders to shape and deliver joined-up care and support with other professionals in localities and neighbourhoods.
Better lifeTransform the lives of our patients and families by achieving a sustainable organisational model that invests in transformed front-line services, delivers more care and prevention closer to home, and supports people to live independently for longer.
Underneath the strategic priorities are five priorities for 2017/18:
- Prevention: we will empower people to self-care and improve their long term health and wellbeing. This is all about helping to ensure that people spend more and more of their lives in good health and that people with a long term condition are able to manage their own care.
- Supporting children: we will support children in growing up to become healthy adults.
- Family medicine: we will provide primary care “step up” and community services to support families to receive care closer to home. We’ll know we’re succeeding in this as quality of life for people with long term conditions increases.
- Supporting winter: we will provide admission avoidance and safe discharge services to help people stay independent during the winter. We’ll know we’re succeeding in this as we reduce avoidable admissions and bed days spent by people in hospital due to winter-related conditions.
- People: we will develop, engage and support our staff to provide great care for our community. This is all about providing you with the support you need to be your best.
