Our Strategy Refresh FINAL - Flipbook - Page 14
We aspire to be an organisation where staff and volunteers
at every level and in every setting know the part they play in
improving quality for our patients. We want to work in an
environment where people can freely offer up their ideas
and insights for how we will work together to drive
improvements and empowered to make the right decisions
for their patients.
Roll out a Leadership Framework aligned to our
leadership principles and value, setting out
expectations, development and support. This is
important so our staff know what is expected of them
and what they can expect from us.
Roll out ‘Engage to Change’ across the organisation to
improve our approach to staff engagement and
promoting ideas from the front line.
Release time to care, giving staff space to think and
develop new ideas, reducing unnecessary admin. We
know that with demand increasing and a growing
population it’s all too common that we get caught up
with dealing with the pressures of the day. We’ll be
working hard to make sure staff get that important
space to think and grow.
Recruit and retain our talent through a Learning and
Development Strategy, which ensures we support the
training and development of our staff so they reach
their potential and deliver good quality care. A new
recruitment approach is already underway and in the
coming months we’ll be developing longer term plans.
Invest in health and wellbeing programmes for staff
and volunteers. Supporting improved role design,
flexibility and better support. Our staff are important
to us and we want to keep them well and healthy, we
also want to make sure that as their circumstances
may change so too can their role.
Empower staff by providing tools to do their job – IT,
information and equipment. This will include device
refreshes, behind the scenes infrastructure upgrades
and working on getting systems working together.
We also want to make the quality of information
better to allow good, informed and timely decision
making. To do this we will need to not only be more
innovative about where and how we source funds for
this investment but also in how we use IT and data to
make the most of it.
Our STAR values and our
leadership principles will
form the basis of our
leadership framework and
how we deliver on behalf
of our patients.
