​Our Values


In 2015 we reviewed our People Strategy and set out a three-year strategic plan to continue to make DCH a great place to work. 

The first step in our People Strategy was to agree our Trust values.  Thanks to the feedback we received, each of our values—Integrity, Respect, Teamwork, Excellence— truly reflect what we all feel is most important.

Underpinning each of our values is a set of behaviours that we all sign up to - The DCH Way, that’s what we all expect to see in each other and the way that we pledge to behave as we go about our work within the Trust. 

As work continues, we will see our values becoming part of everything that we do, including recruitment, appraisal, Trust induction and leadership development. Our values will also be the basis for our revised Patient Charter.
