East London NHS Foundation Trust provides community health, mental health and primary care services to a population of around 1.8million people across Bedfordshire, Luton, Richmond and East London. Our five year strategy takes into account the changing needs and strengths within our local populations, the impact of the pandemic on our communities, greater collaborative working between local health and social care organisations and the views of local people and stakeholders. It provides us with direction, and defines our priorities as an organisation.
There are four objectives in our plan, which again remain consistent with our previous strategy. They are:
- To improve population health so that our communities are healthier and able to get more out of life.
- To improve the experience of care – so that anyone in contact with our services feels safe, feels involved in decisions about their care and knows that the staff around them are focused on their recovery and their future goals.
- To improve staff experience – so that staff are able to grow, learn, feel supported and enjoy what they do.
- And finally, our fourth objective is to improve value – by making the best use of our resources, making the best use of everyone’s time, removing obstacles that delay or hold things up, and by adopting systems and processes to make things more efficient and effective for everyone.
