vision mission-flat


We will aim to:

  • Work with organisations and individuals who can contribute to our vision
  • Learn from what goes well and also healthcare that goes wrong
  • Base what we do on best practice while recognising other people's opinions
  • Demonstrate a culture of compassion for patient, relatives, carers and those working in healthcare and in other areas
  • Work to make sure that we have the resources to make healthcare better and fairer and to go on doing so in the future
  • Make sure we secure the best care for our patients within our allocated budget
  • Inspire others with our vision of the future and our commitment to achieving it


Our operating principles are:

  • Clinically lead the quality and safety improvements for commissioned services
  • Bring the intelligence from the consultation room into the commissioning cycle
  • Translate the commissioning intelligence from constituent practice members into the decision making process for describing the commissioning intentions of the CCG
  • Utilise a variety of effective patient and public forums that capture timely robust data to ensure that people have a positive experience of care
  • Uphold the NHS constitution
