We aim to deliver the best care by the best people to support improved health and wellbeing for the communities we serve. We are committed to making the most of opportunities to work across traditional healthcare boundaries to bring real benefits to our patients and service users.
We work closely with other organisations and are continuously looking to develop innovative, integrated and comprehensive healthcare services that support people out of hospital where possible.
