Trust Strategy

North Bristol NHS Trust Strategy 2019 - 2024

NBT strategy

Our vision is that by enabling our teams to be the best that they can be, we will provide exceptional healthcare, personally delivered.

The best health and care is not the work of an individual, a single team or even one organisation. Partnership and collaboration is fundamental.

“Exceptional healthcare” means our patients will recognise that we are exemplars of safe, harm-free care and that we give them the best possible health improvement. We will do this through  outstanding Emergency Care, our centres of excellence for Specialist Services, our great Local Services and as a Powerhouse for Pathology and Imaging.

“Personally delivered” means patients are in charge of their own care and the decisions that need to be made for their health and wellbeing. A genuine partnership with patients and the public is at the heart of any changes we make and will ensure an outstanding patient and carer experience.

Designed with staff, patients and partners, the strategy describes how we want to:

  • provide high quality patient care;
  • develop healthcare for the future;
  • become an employer of choice; and
  • act as an anchor in the community.


Our Quality Strategy

This strategy sets out a strong vision of working collectively to achieve our ambitions, and shows how we will come together as OneNBT to provide the very best care that we can.

It is made up of three themed chapters:

  • Exceptional Personalised care

  • Safe and Harm Free Care

  • Excellent clinical outcomes
