Aims, Purpose and Commitments
Dudley first: community where possible, hospital where necessary
We are truly different. We are a new type of NHS organisation created to serve our Dudley population in a genuinely integrated way
To connect with the people of Dudley, embrace our diversity and support them to live longer healthier lives.
We will do this by ensuring everyone involved in the provision of care works together, keeping the person at the heart of everything they do.

Simplify what can be complex

- Work with our citizens to be the co-designers of future services
Be accountable for our actions
Our job is to serve the people of Dudley and ultimately; they will judge our actions:
- Each of us has a personal responsibility for our decisions and actions; to be leaders. Only through our actions will we build trust and respect for the work we do.
- Be accessible and responsive - listen to our staff, service users and local population; actively seeking those whose voice is quieter than others or those that are ‘hard to reach’; and then respond with the means available to us.
- We will behave inclusively, building on our diversity
- We will encourage our population to be part of our future workforce and service suppliers
