Our Values and Behaviours
Notts Healthcare is currently going through exciting times of change and it is a great time to join us. From May - October 2019 we have undertaken a large consultation to review our Trust values with input from our staff, patients, carers and service users advising what values are most important to them.
Although yet to be formally launched, the new values have been signed off by Board in November 2019 and will be:
Honesty, Compassion, Trust, Respect and Teamwork
Furthermore, our staff overwhelmingly advise that their reason that they do the demanding roles they do is to:
Make a difference to patient care
Our key priority is to ensure we are supporting our staff with compassion to ensure that they are able to offer the high levels of care we want for our patients and service users.
Working for the Trust can be challenging and very busy, but ultimately it's a worthwhile, rewarding and positive experience not only for our staff but the people we care for.
You can find out about the variety of roles available in the NHS on the Health Careers website.
