Our plans

Successful organisations have a shared purpose, they know where they’re going and they know how they’re going to get there.

In other words they have a strategy and plans. Staff from right across our Trust, our governors, our partners and our patients have helped to shape our shared purpose in our strategy.

You can find out about all of these things in the documents we write, including our main strategy document and our annual plans and annual reports.

Our Vision

We will provide the best healthcare for everyone within our population.

Our values

Our values, as laid out in the strategy, are:

  • Collaborative – working in collaboration with partners and stakeholders is critical to the improvement of the health care sector and an essential part of joining up health services in the area
  • Aspirational – our staff and volunteers often ‘go the extra mile’ to provide care for our patients, and we encourage all staff to do the same
  • Respectful – we will treat every patient, visitor and colleague with dignity and respect
  • Empathetic – empathy and understanding are essential to build relationships in the Trust and externally

Embedding the CARE values in our daily work as we serve the communities of North Tees and Hartlepool will allow the Trust to deliver our vision.
