Public Sector Equality Duty Report Summary 2022/2023

Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust sits at the heart of our community and plays a huge part in people’s daily lives, be those colleagues, patients, or members of the public

Our vision is to deliver outstanding care, healthy communities and be a great place to work. Our mission is to provide personalised and compassionate care.

To deliver our vision and mission, we have three strategic priorities:

  • Provide outstanding, best value care – care that is compassionate and inclusive and delivers the best possible outcomes in the most efficient way. People deserve nothing less.
  • Take a leading role in our community, where we play our role in supporting people to live independent healthy lives at home.
  • Ensure our people are listened to, safe and supported, creating a great place to work that is inclusive and compassionate. A workplace that learns and improves together and values the health and wellbeing of our colleagues because we know that happy, healthy people deliver the best care.

We want to be bold in how we deliver care to our patients. Over the next five years we will radically change the way we deliver healthcare and move away from the hospital being the first point of contact. Working with our partners, such as GPs, mental health services and social care, we will build and develop our community and primary care services so that patients can access health advice, support, and care in their communities and closer to their homes.

We have set out our strategic framework and plans for how we intend to achieve our vision and during 2023/34 we will be focusing on six key objectives:

  • Improving waiting times in our Emergency Department
  • Improving safety
  • Improving productivity
  • Improving access and the effectiveness of our services for communities experiencing the poorest outcomes
  • Improving the experience of our new starters
  • Developing the operational and clinical management and leadership skills of those in key roles.
