Our brand, identity and style guide

Our brand is designed to reflect the ethos and values of the Trust. This is more than a logo; it is an identity. A great brand communicates effectively who you are are and what you stand for. The brand symbolises everything that Nottinghamshire Healthcare is about. It is about people - our staff, volunteers, carers, service users and patients and our partners in other organisations and the community - and the way we are all linked together, in teamwork, collaboration and making a difference.
