Our Strategic Priorities

Quadruple Aim Quadruple Aim diagram made up of four quadrants: improving health, best possible care, value for money and joy and pride in work.

Four key areas of focus which really demonstrate to our colleagues, patients and families the aims of the Trust.

  1. Demand for our services has grown, we are working much more closely with our partners in Lancashire and South Cumbria to transform our services to ensure we can provide the best possible care for our patients. This means safe, timely, accessible care for all.
  2. We are working to improve health within our communities and with that address health inequalities, so that those who need our services most can access them, supporting them in whatever stage of their mental and physical health journey.
  3. We need to ensure that as one of the largest employers in the region we, support, retain, and grow our workforce, striving to be the employer of choice where colleagues experience joy and pride in their work. Our colleagues are our most important asset.
  4. And whilst delivering high-quality care, and becoming the best place to work, we need to stay within our budget and provide the most efficient and effective care that we can, demonstrating value for money at all times.
