Our People Strategy 2015 - 2018 - Leaders in Peoples Services

Our vision for healthcare as set out in the Corporate Plan, 2015 - 2017 is to put people in the heart of everything we do - we are committed to delivering high quality safe healthcare to our service users, communities and the wider population.  The People Strategy 2015-2018 has been developed in recognition of the vital role of staff at all levels in addressing the many challenges in delivering health services across and within all settings in communities, hospitals and healthcare facilities.  Our clear commitment is to engage, develop and value our workforce to deliver the best possible care and services to the people who depend on them.  We also know from evidence that staff who are valued, supported in their development and treated well improve patient care and overall performance.  

This People Strategy underpins the wider health reform and is focused on people services for the whole of the health system - improved people management is the responsibility of all leaders, managers and staff.  The role of our colleagues in Human Resources (HR) is to lead, facilitate and support many of the activities described in the Strategy and to do so by working in partnership with colleagues throughout the system.  Many of the important actions outlined will only be delivered by working across and between services at all levels and in particular by engaging with frontline staff who are our connection with those who use our services.  By working together on the implementation of the Corporate Plan and People Strategy we will reform our services and have pride and confidence in our ability to deliver excellence to the people living in our communities.
