Strategy FAQ's

Questions about our NELFT Corporate Strategy 2018-2023

Q. Why has the strategy been refreshed?

The health and care landscape in which we operate is constantly changing and the most recent focus is on improving the health of populations across localities in a more integrated and joined up way. 

As a Trust we provide a wide range of community and mental health services across a number of localities and this can be complex and demanding. We work with a lot of commissioners and partners who have different requirements for how we deliver care to patients in their areas. 

This level of complexity can sometimes make it challenging to feel like we are all part of one Trust and to ensure we can articulate why we make certain decisions. The refreshed strategy aims to set a direction of travel for the Trust that can bring people together in terms of working towards common goals but offers the flexibility to ensure it is relevant in all of our localities. 

Q. Who was involved in developing the strategy?

The Trust Board, senior leaders, Governors and partners have all been involved in the process of developing the strategy. 

Q. How will we measure our success?

There are a number of strategic priorities linked to each strategic objective and these have detailed plans to help deliver them. 

Each area has an Executive Director lead who will be reporting progress to our Trust Board on a regular basis. 

Q. Have we considered the latest national guidance in the refresh of our organisational strategy?

Yes we have ensured that all the latest guidance available at the time of the refresh was considered and factored into our update.
