On the road: Mapping out our strategic direction
Health and social care in England is constantly evolving. Not only do we have to meet the changing needs of the population but we must ensure we do it in the most effective and efficient way possible.
This means different organisations within the NHS must adapt to make best use of things like new technology and advances in medicine as well as working more effectively with each other to ensure people receive the highest quality care available.
East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EMAS) is playing a leading role locally, regionally and nationally in these changes and, as a result, we are talking about how our organisation’s vision and values might need to change.
Our vision and values are a set of statements that underpin how we behave as individuals and as an organisation and give us a clear sense of direction – both on a day-to-day basis and in the longer term.
We are finding out what our stakeholders think (that’s anyone and everyone who has an interest in EMAS – from patients and their families and our own staff, right through to Government ministers and Whitehall officials).
We have asked for views about our draft vision and values - what you like, what you don’t like and how you think we can improve the wording to best reflect our service.
Nothing has been decided yet, and we are now compiling comments from a wide range of individuals and groups before we decide on a preferred version which will be considered further before a final decision by our board of directors. We'll keep you posted as things develop.
