Our mission

To reach out to more people by delivering outstanding care, nurturing compassionate communities, sharing our knowledge and expertise and influencing the debate around death and dying.

Our values

Help us in our day-to-day behaviour and in all the decisions we make. They inspire us to understand the unique needs of each patient and their family and carers, to remain responsive and caring and to ensure we remain a centre of excellence delivering high-quality care. Our values can be summarised by the acronym: I CARE


  • Integrity

I will work openly and honestly

I will treat everyone fairly


  • Compassion

I will show genuine interest in all those I come into contact with

I will be kind and thoughtful towards my colleagues


  • Accountability

I will take responsibility for my decisions and actions

I will not blame others when I make a mistake


  • Respect

I will value others and recognise that giving great care depends on everyone doing their job whatever their role may be.

I will value the diversity of others in both opinion and culture and not be rude or dismiss what I do not understand


  • Excellence

I will strive to learn, to improve and always do my best

I will put the person I am helping at the centre of everything I do in order to deliver the best possible experience for them
