Help Shape Our New Strategy:

The vision of South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust is to offer each and every person outstanding treatment and support to enable their recovery and to live fulfilling lives. The Trust is working with staff, local partners, service users and carers to develop a draft strategy that describes a small number of big ambitions to help us deliver our vision.

The strategy sets out five strategic aims:

  1. Quality: we will get the basic right in every contact and keep improving what matters to service users.
  2. Partnership: we will work together with service users, their support networks and whole populations to realise their potential.
  3. A great place to work: we will value, support and develop our managers and staff.
  4. Innovation: we will strive to be at the forefront of what is possible, exploiting our unique strengths in research and development, with everyone involved and learning.
  5. Value: we will make the best use of our assets, resources, relationships and reputation to support the best quality outcomes.

The quality priorities include:

  1. All patients will have access to the right care at the right time in the most appropriate setting.
  2. Within three years, we will routinely involve service users and carers in all aspects of service design, improvement and governance; and all aspects of planning and delivery of each individual’s care.
  3. Over the next three years, we will enable staff to experience improved satisfaction and joy at work.
  4. We will reduce violence by 50% over the next three years with the aim of reducing all types of restrictive practices.
