Our Corporate Strategy to 2025
Our strategy for 2023-2025 will continue building on the objectives set in recent years while addressing the evolving circumstances impacting the Trust and our patients, populations, and people.
The five key themes of our strategy
- To continually improve patient safety and reduce waiting times
- To actively listen to our patients’ experiences and voice, increasing patient satisfaction and co-designing services where we can
- To reduce health inequalities for our most vulnerable patients and communities
- To make our organisation a great place to work for everyone
- To use our resources efficiently and focus on long term investments
We’ll be continually measuring our progress against each theme, making both small and large changes to our organisation and the way we work to achieve our vision of: ‘a great place to get care, a great place to give care’.
Every single one of our amazing staff plays an outstanding role in delivering high quality care to our patients and service users. At the heart of our People Strategy 2021- 2024, is compassion for colleagues, who at a time of unprecedented challenge, continue to strive to do their best.
We’re immensely pleased and proud to say that the results for the 2020 NHS National Staff Survey are the best we’ve ever had. We succeeded in realising the highest engagement score (7.5) of all Community and Mental Health trusts.
Our vision is for Berkshire Healthcare to be an outstanding place to work; a place where everyone can grow and thrive. Despite our high engagement score, we know this isn’t the case for everyone right now. Our strategy seeks to address the areas where people have poorer work experiences so that we’re a place where people want to work and stay, and sets out a clear plan for how we’re going to achieve this.
It’s been developed by listening to what you have to say, through listening to teams, holding workshops and looking at the data you’ve provided through the annual staff survey and other sources.
Hand in hand with our People strategy, our Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) strategy is the golden thread that runs through everything we do. The strategy will address the differentials in experience and identified inequalities for significant numbers of our workforce.
