Together we care - Trust values

Trust values

Our values are about 'how we do things around here' at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust. They are called 'Together We Care' - it's simple but true.

The values are based around five key points: Committed to Excellence, Teamwork, Accountability, Compassion and Integrity.

Our values define the acceptable standards and behaviours within our organisation and will now become a key part of the Trust’s strategy and be visible around the organisation.

Chief Executive's message

Simon Morritt, Chief Executive at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, said:

“We are very pleased to have communicated our Trust Values and are embedding these throughout our organisation. We already know and live our core values - now we have decided to write them down and keep them close at hand in everything we do.

“Our staff already know the care, compassion and other qualities which goes into their work every day and the parents and patients feel it too. With this set of core values we now have it in writing so the public can see that we go about our care with compassion and consideration.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all our staff who make the Trust such a great success and help to change the lives of children for the better every day.”

Full values statements

The values were put together from the opinions and ideas of a large number of our staff from every area of the organisation.
