Our Strategy – Working Together, Improving Together

Our strategy sets out our vision, values, strategic aims and most importantly, how we will deliver against these ambitions for our patients, communities, and people in the future.

It is not just a document, it is for and about everyone at PHU, building on what we have achieved with a renewed focus on continuous improvement and the need to continue to work together and improve together to achieve our goals. 

A full copy of the strategy can be downloaded here.

For more information, please visit our strategy webpage.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

Background to the awards

The employee and team of the month’ staff recognition programme was developed in 2009 to address our NHS National Staff Survey results.

The programme was paused due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, however we believe it remains important to recognise and thank individuals and teams for their incredible work, so have made the decision to restart these from June 2021.

The employee and team of the month staff recognition scheme forms part of the wider annual Pride of Portsmouth awards and winners will go forward into the annual awards for the opportunity to become employee or team of the year.

Ideas and help with your nomination

Nominations should recognise and reward an individual employee or a team who has made a substantial contribution to the quality of care provided to a patient or colleague or delivered exceptional levels of support. Where possible, please identify how you think they demonstrated one or more the Trust’s core values, which are:

Working together:

  • For patients
  • With compassion
  • As one team
  • Always improving

When submitting your nomination, please provide as much detail as possible on how you felt the individual or team went above and beyond for you, a friend or a member of your family.

  • What stood out for you?
  • How did it make your experience of care, visit or day at work more positive?
  • Has a project or scheme of work added value for our patients, visitors or colleagues, if so how?
  • How did the team or individual contribute to the overall success of the project, piece of work or care provided?
