Our mission and vision

Our mission is to improve the health of the people we serve by delivering exceptional care, teaching and research every day.

Our vision for 2025 is to:

  • grow our specialist hospital services and our position as a leading provider in south west England and beyond
  • work more closely with our health and care partners to provide more joined up local healthcare services and support the improvement of the health and wellbeing of our communities
  • become a beacon for outstanding education and research and our culture of innovation.

How we are doing – our performance

Our performance is monitored and managed through the Trust's divisional management and governance processes. Each division has a divisional board that monitors and manages its performance. The Trust-wide Service Delivery Group and Senior Leadership Team manage and monitor performance at a Trust-wide level.

The Trust Board receives a monthly performance report at each board meeting that provides information about external views of the Trust from ratings and scores published by the Care Quality Commission, NHS Choices and NHS Improvement; and our performance on clinical quality indicators, patient experience, access standards and workforce indicators.

Our performance is also monitored by local and national commissioners.
