We are an NHS trust of around 8,000 people, providing care for the population of Gloucestershire and beyond.

Our Strategic Objectives, Mission, Vision and Values

To achieve the best for our patients, their families, our staff and our communities, we need cohesive and focused priorities for the coming years. It is important that we all pull together, with the focus on patients and our strategic goals/objectives will ensure that this happens. If we achieve our objectives, we will move closer towards our vision of the future: Best Care for Everyone.

Our Values

Our values underpin everything we do and describe the way we expect our staff to behave towards our patients, families and carers and between each other. We have six values, with a particular focus on the first three:

  1. Listening, patients said: "Please acknowledge me, even if you can't help me right now. Show me that you know that I'm here."
  2. Excelling, patients said: "Don't just do what you have to, take the next step and go the extra mile."
  3. Caring, patients said: "Show me that you care about me as an individual. Talk to me, not about me. Look at me when you talk to me."
  4. Helping, patients said: "Please ask me if everything is alright and if it isn't, be willing to help me."
  5. Improving, patients said: "I expect you to know what you're doing and be good at it."
  6. Uniting, patients said: "Be proud of each other and the care you all provide."

Our organisation

Simple guides to our Trust

These Simple Guides have been produced to give rapid, at-a-glance information about a range of key topics and are designed to help colleagues to easily understand the way we do things at the Trust. Each has a brief outline of the key points and has useful links to the intranet or external websites that can provide additional information. The intention is for the guides to be extended to cover additional topics as and when they arise.

The future

The nature of healthcare is developing and changing all the time and it is important that we ensure that our hospitals are able to provide a safe and pleasant environment both now and in the future.Our trust has a history of successful new developments at both our sites which have delivered improved facilities and services for patients.It is responsible for us to be looking to the future and planning developments for the future of both hospitals - take a look at our plans for Cheltenham General Hospital and Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.
