Date: 05 October 2021

Never has there been a more important time to review our clinical approach and renew our commitment to providing excellent care. Together with our service users, carers, staff and partners we have co-created an ambitious vision for the kind of care we want to provide and have agreed a set of principles for the people who use our services.

Our clinical principles, which will guide every aspect of the way we provide our services and which set out what behaviours and actions our patients and carers can expect from us, are:

  • People at the heart
  • Whole person care
  • Kindness matters
  • Accessible and flexible, recovery-focused and inclusive
  • Providing safety
  • Addressing inequalities
  • Open, honest, trustworthy and transparent
  • Best evidence and outcome focused
  • Collaborative and co-produced

These principles will help us achieve our clinical priorities for the next five year which include making transforming urgent, crisis and community care for both adults and children, developing our physical health services, and maintaining the excellence we have in our specialist services.

We recognise there is more to be done to address health inequalities across our three boroughs. Until we have achieved this, we cannot be confident that our new clinical services are available to everyone who needs them. We pledge to continue to lead on ensuring equality and inclusion in health and being innovative and bold in our ideas to implement our vision for integrated healthcare.

Our Clinical Strategy places equal importance on mental and physical health, confirming our commitment to using new digital technologies to address poor mortality rates in mental health patients and to improve outcomes for all our patients. We also commit to reducing variation in care and access to treatment to ensure all those we serve receive consistently high-quality care where and when they need it.

I hope that you find our Clinical Strategy useful and inspiring and I look forward to working with you on making it a reality in the months and years ahead.
