Trust values

Together we care

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.

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.
