Organising Principle – the core principle that guides everything we do.
Our guiding principle is Putting Patients First.
At The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust we all believe that our role as individuals and as an organisation is to provide the safest possible care, at the highest level of quality we can afford, using the best evidence of what provides the greatest benefit to patients.
We also know that the price of any failure of care is always paid by the patient, and their family. This may be experienced as avoidable harm, or unnecessary delay. We are convinced that by focusing on what patients need us to do we will do the best job we can.
We all want to put patients and their families first. This is the organising principle behind the way we manage the Trust. We believe ‘putting patients first’ is a simple and clear way to remember what we are all here to do.
