Vision and Values

Our Vision vision-and values-wheel-close.jpg

Our vision as an organisation is:

"To make a positive difference in people’s lives by improving health and wellbeing."

Our Values

Our vision is underpinned by four key values, which have been developed in partnership with our patients, carers, colleagues and wider partners.

We can only provide good quality services through our dedicated colleagues, working together with a common purpose. Our values reflect the reasons why our workforce choose to work for the NHS and for Derbyshire Healthcare.

  • People first – We focus on our colleagues, in the knowledge that a well-supported, engaged and empowered workforce results in good patient care 
  • Respect – We respect and value the diversity of our patients, colleagues and partners and support a respectful and inclusive environment
  • Honesty – We are open and transparent in all we do 
  • Do your best – We work closely with our partners to achieve the best possible outcomes for people. 

The Team Derbyshire Healthcare Promise outlines a number of commitments between the Trust and its colleagues, as developed by Derbyshire Healthcare staff.
