Our Organisational Strategy

Our Organisational Strategy 2019-2021 has been developed based on feedback from our patients, staff, governors and the public. It outlines our vision to be a leading regional provider of acute healthcare, consistently delivering high quality care to the communities we serve.

We have set out six strategic objectives to achieve this, which are described in detail in our strategy, and will:

  • Improve quality, safety and experience, resulting in Good and then Outstanding care
  • Improve the quality and experience of the care we offer, so patients are treated in a timely way and access the best care at all times

  • Transform the way we provide services across east Kent, enabling the whole system to offer excellent integrated services
  • Develop teams with the right skills to provide care at the right time, in the right place and achieve the best outcomes for patients
