Our vision, values, quality priorities and objectives

Our vision

Our vision is “To be Outstanding” – in all we do and how we do it.

Proud to CARE – our values for the way we want our staff to behave

In delivering our services – as well as in all of our working relationships with service users, carers, families, stakeholders and each other, we are guided by our Proud to CARE values – to be compassionate, approachable, responsible and excellent.

SPAR – our quality priorities – the four key areas which evidence that we are delivering high quality care and treatment to those using our services in a way that is person-centred

Our vision is underpinned by our SPAR quality priorities – to provide services that are safepersonalisedaccessible and recovery-focused.

These guide all we do and are the benchmark against which we judge how we perform.


Our strategy

 ‘The Future of North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust’ – Trust Strategy 2023 – 2028

North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust’s Trust Strategy for 2023 – 2028 is called ‘The Future of North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust, Our Strategy, 2023 – 2028’.

The strategy has been developed after many months of work and engagement with Trust staff, service users and external stakeholders to deliver a strategy which addresses the needs of North Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent’s diverse, local population, aligned with Combined Healthcare’s Trust values.

A Greener NHS 

The NHS is the world’s first health service to commit to reaching carbon net zero, in response to the profound and growing threat to health posed by climate change. The “Delivering
a Net Zero Health Service
report sets out a clear ambition and two evidence-based targets.

Partners in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent are working together to tackle climate change, and there are lots of ways we can all do our bit.
