Ambition 3: A great place to work

We want to be a great place to work. We will make sure that our workforce has the right values, skills, diversity and experience to meet the changing needs of our service users and carers.

We cannot deliver our commitments without meeting the needs of our staff and enabling them to thrive. We will invest in staff wellbeing, supporting our workforce to feel valued and safe, to meet their potential and support delivery of high quality care.

Quality of care is improved by having a workforce that represents our communities. We will build a culture of respect, trust and psychological safety, celebrating diversity and making sure staff feel safe to raise concerns.

We will work with partner organisations, including universities, to recruit, develop and retain our people.

We will simplify the way that we work. We will create time for staff to care and learn, be open to new ideas and encourage innovation and research.
