The ‘Our People’ Strategy aims to recognise the value brought to the Trust by it’s people and the link that exists between an engaged, happy workforce who feel valued and the quality and efficiency of the care they are able to deliver.
This Strategy seeks to create the cultural conditions required for all colleagues to feel truly engaged and a partner in ‘Caring – showing compassion, respect and empathy for our patients, families and each other, caring about the difference we make for our community’. An essential part of the culture we are trying to create is to encourage staff to speak out freely.
The Strategy recognises that not all staff provide direct patient care but that we all have a key role in the patient journey. The Trust wishes to support and value our people in their development to ensure they are able to progress as far as they want to.
Supporting the Trusts objectives
The Trust’s vision ‘to provide excellent care for the community we serve’ will be recognised through a well-educated workforce, who are immersed in the change and transformation agenda that is necessary for services to evolve and thrive.
The “people” aspects of the Trust Strategy will be delivered through the domains of: Achieving for our patients, keeping great people, engagement and wellbeing, people development and leadership, support and belonging, attracting people and transforming SaTH together.
None of this can be delivered without open engagement with collective leadership and an inclusive culture that encourages and enables colleagues to be their best every day.
