Living Our Values
Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust encompassed the values of the NHS Constitution as the new organisation’s Values, and the behaviours these entail.
“Living Our Values” is a process that engages with all staff to help them to describe what these values mean to them in the context of the role they perform in the organisation, and the organisation will hold people
to account by them. It also supports inter-professional staff in patient care areas to develop a local charter which describes specifically how those values are demonstrated in their team and place of work. For staff in corporate areas, it helps them to describe how many ‘steps away’ their role is from front line patient care, and how their role support this. It is about making the NHS Constitutional values come alive within the Trust, and be meaningful to staff in their day to day practice.
