Why we do what we do
Our aim is to make a real difference to peoples’ lives by offering health and social care services that are:
- free at the point of need;
- better than what went before;
- a great experience for everyone; and
- better value for the public and the NHS.
We understand that it’s our people who make us who we are, and it’s about how together we can make a difference.
