Our Culture


In our most recent survey:-

 

Each of us works hard as part of one team to reach our mission of improving the mental and physical health and wellbeing of people so they can enjoy a better life.

We are proud to lead our communities in challenging stigma and developing their role in improving mental health support.

We look to the future and create simple solutions that will help people and their families live their lives well.

It means we bring our personalities to work and get involved with what is going on around us.

We believe that a diverse mix of voices lead to better decisions and outcomes for everyone.

Empowering individuals is at the heart of everything we do, together, we are partners working together and collaborating in your care.

Be part of our team & make a difference.

We work in a fast paced environment with everyday offering new challenges and opportunities. Our employees come form all walks of life  but share a common approach and mission .

We know that a happy workforce improves patient care and so we want you to enjoy your work. We have been in the HSJ 100 best places to work for two years running. We pride ourselves on providing high quality person centred services, which stem from a commitment to staff development, continuous improvement and encouraging innovation and research.

Here at Surrey and borders we have a reputation for being innovative and forward thinking. Our vision and values are at the heart of our core purpose to deliver excellent and responsive assessment, treatment and care.

We recognise that people are our most important asset and we support staff in a range of ways including flexible working and access to a subsidised day nursery.

Our Vision and Values were created as a result of a series of conversations which were held in 2005 to consider the ways in which we should be working. Participants in these conversations numbered in excess of 600 and included staff, people who use services, their carers and families, County Council social care staff, local voluntary groups, Primary Care Trusts, our regulators and independent and private providers of services.

The statements around these headings are quotes from the conversations where people described what they would like their experience of the Trust to be. The Trust Board and Executive Team are committed to ensuring that our Vision and Values guide how we work and how we make our decisions. We are actively using them to test how well we are performing and we will be using them increasingly as a basis for seeking the views of staff, people who use services and carers on how we are doing.
