3 Introduction Together, putting patients first is Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust s strategy for It outlines our ambitions for the coming years, recognising the challenging environment the NHS as a whole faces. During this period we will ensure that patients are at the centre of all that we do and that our services support the needs of our population. Most people will recognise us through our hospital sites at Bradford Royal Infirmary, St Luke s Hospital, Westbourne Green, Westwood Park, Shipley Hospital and Eccleshill Hospital. We also provide other services in the community (doctors, nurses, midwives and physiotherapists) and at various locations, ranging from GP practices to other neighbouring hospitals in Airedale, Halifax and Huddersfield. We have a clear mission to deliver safe healthcare of the highest quality at all times for all our patients. We are committed to looking and learning from the experiences of others to ensure that our healthcare is consistently of the highest quality and responsive to the needs of our patients, families and carers. We have a large and active Foundation Trust membership base and an excellent reputation for education and research. We recognise the diversity and specific health needs of our local and regional population, and this strategy is designed to ensure we work both internally and with partners to put the needs of our patients first.

4 We have set out below, our core values as an organisation those statements that will remain absolutely fundamental to what we do regardless of the political, social or economic context. We Care we ensure that patients are at the centre of all that we do, with each patient treated as an individual and involved in decisions about their care. We recognise the diversity of our patients and respond with kindness to their needs, listening carefully and communicating clearly. We Value People we recognise that we can only deliver excellent care by working together. This means striving towards equality, valuing diversity and recognising the positive contributions made by staff, volunteers, patients and carers. We support our staff to do the best job they can, nurturing leadership and talent and rewarding achievement. We Strive for Excellence we aspire to be the best that we can be, continuously learning, seeking out new treatments and ways to care, putting us at the forefront of clinical practice. We value creativity, innovation and curiosity and seek to work with partners delivering excellent care. We Make Every Penny Count we are open and accountable for how we use public money, using evidence to make investments where we know it adds the most value for patients. At the same time we continually look to work more efficiently and effectively, ensuring that your money is well spent.

5 are the reason why we are here and the centre of everything we do. It is our vision that patients will seek to choose to be treated by us and will recommend us to family and friends. The key focus of the strategy for our patients is to: Understand what is important to patients and get these things right the first time Ensure patients go home happy with our service or resolve issues there and then Work in partnership with our patients to deliver the care and services they need Use clear measures to assess the quality of our services with patient and carer involvement Deliver improvements in care that are shaped by patients. choose their care with us and recommend us to family and friends We will improve our communication with patients We will improve patient satisfaction We will improve patient involvement We will improve our use of quality measures.

6 are the engine room of the organisation and the heartbeat of our strategy, without their dedication and work we could not deliver the care our patients deserve. It is our vision that all our staff, whether on a ward, in an office or on the road will excel in putting patients first in the work that they do. The key focus of the strategy for our staff is to: Ensure every member of staff understands their role in prioritising patient care Provide development and support that enables staff to do the best job they can Make every staff member proud to work for us and to show this in their work Create well designed jobs that promote innovation, interest and care Promote equality and diversity across the organisation Deliver services and change through effective clinical leadership. excel at putting patients first, wherever they work in the Foundation Trust We will fit the service around the needs of the patient We will improve our recognition of staff efforts We will improve staff perception of the organisation We will improve staff satisfaction at work We will improve clinical leadership We will improve our work on equality and diversity.

8 is the structure within which we are managed and operate, from the Foundation Trust Membership, the Council of Governors and Board of Directors to the frontline. vision is to always be a well-managed organisation that meets its obligations to patients. The key focus of the strategy for our organisation is to: Develop a 24/7 service that operates around the needs of the patient Be sustainable, preserving our services so they can always be there for patients Keep improving what we do and how we do it Be open and transparent with our patients, staff and partners Meet all our regulatory and statutory targets and obligations Ensure our IT systems and processes support the delivery of high-quality care.

It is our vision that we will work hand-in-hand with GPs and other partners to ensure we all put patients first. The key focus of the strategy for our community is to: Work with GPs and external partners to put patients at the centre of their care Develop effective working relationships across traditional care boundaries Ensure all staff see the patient journey extending beyond our organisation and working to improve the whole experience as a result Develop services in the community where possible Be an excellent partner for local business, voluntary and public sector organisations.

10 What next? Together, putting patients first sets out our strategy and vision for the next five years and has outlined some specific commitments that we seek to achieve in order to deliver the strategy. The Foundation Trust has instigated a clear programme of work identifying the commitments identified here and many more that have been signed up to by the Board of Directors. These form the framework within which our service strategies will be developed. These commitments all have a starting point and all have an end in mind. The Board of Directors will measure our progress against these commitments on a regular basis, reviewing and instigating work to deliver these requirements. This progress will be made available for patients, the public and partners to view to gauge our success as part of our commitment to transparency and openness. We will keep this strategy under review to ensure it remains fit for purpose and relevant but will always continue to make sure that two fundamental principles remain; we will seek to provide safe healthcare, of the highest quality at all times and we will work together, with partners, to put the needs of our patients first.
