What are values?

Values are things that you believe in and are important in the way you live and work. Whether we are aware of it or not, we all we all live our lives by a set of values that shape how we think and react.

They provide us with standards that we want to meet to ensure consistency, positive attitudes and cultures.


What do values mean in healthcare mean?

Healthcare values outline key principles that guide healthcare professionals to understand right from wrong and what is important when caring for and supporting individuals.

In health and social care, values are there to ensure a high-quality person-centred service is provided to people who require care and support. Each healthcare provider has it’s own values tailored to the business's purpose, goals and expectations.

The importance of our values

Our values set out clear expectations of what is expected within the service we provide to ensure person-centred care is at the forefront of everything we do. These core values highlight what we expect our workers to achieve and how our attitudes and behaviours can affect the care we provide to people in the community.
