Our mission, values and aims Our mission, values and aims

Our mission

Our CCG's mission is “To commission (buy) first class healthcare which improves the health and wellbeing of everyone living in Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby.”

Our patients are at the heart of everything we do and we want to work closely with our local communities to help us achieve our goals.

Our values

All of our work is underpinned by our values:

  • Action
  • Collaboration
  • Courage
  • Energy
  • Focus
  • Integrity
  • Transparency

Our aims

We aim to:

  • Involve people in their care and as part of that we will encourage self-care
  • Buy quality services
  • Change services for the better and in doing so we will provide care as close to home as possible that is easily accessible
  • Use the money we have in the best possible way

Our biggest challenge

We need to develop innovative solutions to meet the problems of rurality, an ageing population and financial pressures. The challenge of living within our means is going to be particularly difficult over the next few years. We engage with and listen to patients, staff and everyone else with an interest to understand how services could be delivered differently in the future, for the benefit of our whole community.

What is the key to making our vision real?

Our success depends on having full, open and honest discussions with patients, carers, the public, clinicians, local authorities and voluntary groups and working in partnership with them.
