Trust Strategy: Excellence in Neuroscience

Our Vision
Our vision is Excellence in NeuroscienceWe strive for outstanding patient outcomes and the best patient, family and carer experience. We will continue to cherish the standards we have achieved, whilst exploring how we can enhance these further, shaping neuroscience treatments and care for the future.

Our Purpose
Dedicated specialist staff leading future treatment and excellent clinical outcomes for brain, spinal and neurological care nationally and internationally.

Our vision is what we strive for and our purpose is what we do. Our purpose has been chosen by our staff to reflect our culture, what we believe in and what we strive to deliver for our patients and their families.

As a specialist Trust we have a strong track record of consistently performing well, delivering excellent patient outcomes in our specialist area of neurosciences care. We have a therapeutic focus and world class expertise in many rare and complex patient conditions in our specialist field.

Our Ambitions
To deliver our vision and to meet our purpose, we have through consultation with staff, patients and partners agreed a set of ambitions together.

We will:

  • Deliver best practice care and treatments in our specialist field.
  • Provide more services closer to patients’ homes, driven by the needs of our communities, extending partnership working.
  • Be financially strong, meeting our targets and investing inour services, facilities and innovations for patients and staff.
  • Lead research, education and innovation, pioneering new treatments nationally and internationally.
  • Adopt advanced technology and treatments enabling our teams to deliver excellent patient and family centred care.
  • Be recognised as excellent in our patient and family centred care, clinical outcomes, innovation and staff wellbeing.

For each of our ambitions we will define further what success will look like and what we expect to achieve in the first year of the strategy. At the annual refresh we will build on these for the future.

Our Values
To meet our ambitions we need to ensure a learning culture, that empowers staff to believe they can make and lead change, be curious and seek continuous improvement. We want all staff to feel comfortable being open and honest, treating patients and each other with dignity and respect and we do this through our Walton way values; DignityRespectCaringPride and Openness.

Staff were keen to keep the Walton Way values, which they helped to design, to underpin the Trust strategy and remain core to everything that we do.
