Mission, Vision, Values and Strategy for Wessex Kidney Centre 2015-20
To deliver excellence in kidney care.
To care for patients with kidney disease and educate patients, relatives/carers and other healthcare professionals in renal disease, improving patients’ health, maximising autonomy, minimising suffering and maximising longevity/quality of life.
We will embody the PHT values in everything we do: respect and dignity, quality of care, working together and efficiency.
We will aim to provide best practice, seeking to emulate from those who perform better, research, innovate and learn from our mistakes.
We will aim to strike the appropriate balance between care close to a patient’s home and centralisation of services for specialisation and economies of scale.
We will aim to provide services in sites which appropriately geographically cover the patient population, minimising patient travel where possible, including new sites where these fulfil these criteria.
We will aim to employ sufficient suitably qualified, trained and supported staff to deliver excellent care, while continually considering alternative ways of working, efficiency, modernisation, alternative roles and technological alternatives.
