Working closely with our partner organisations, our 6,500 staff and volunteers care for a diverse community of 750,000 people.
Our PRIDE values of Passion; Responsibility; Innovation; Drive and Empowerment inspire us and keep our patients at the heart of everything we do.
Our vision is to provide outstanding healthcare to our community, delivered with pride. It is driven by our PRIDE values and behaviours which were developed together with our staff.
We’ve witnessed incredible transformation take place across our hospitals as we deal with Covid-19. Thanks to the brilliant and fast-paced work of our staff we’ve achieved some remarkable things, including:
Holding 5,700 appointments over the phone in April – meaning fewer patients had to come to hospital.
20 wards were transformed to care for Covid-19 patients at the peak of the pandemic.
A five-fold increase in our critical care capacity.
Cancer treatment and trauma care moved to nearby ‘Covid-free’ hospitals to keep patients safe and continue their treatment.
Psychological support for our staff in person and over the phone from a team of psychologists.
More than 1,000 ‘Thinking of You’ messages delivered to patients.
