If you are new to the NHS, welcome to the world of amazing staff benefits. The hospital has developed a range of staff perks, and there are companies who also allow NHS employees to benefit from some great offers and discounts. Click here to read the most up to date list of staff benefits.

Our Trust Values provide a guide for our daily lives which we are all expected to uphold, both at work and when we are representing the Trust.

Our Values were developed by staff and our patients, so they represent what is important to us within the organisation and the way we should all behave towards patients, carers,visitors, partners and each other.


You will see our Values throughout the Trust; they are not just words on a page, they represent what we are about here at SaTH. We want patients and their families to say that the care and service they receive from all of us is consistently high quality, safe, effective and personalised, so the feelings behind the Values shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone working in the NHS.

The reason why it is important that they are clearly written down is so we all know what’s expected, and none of us is surprised if we are asked to explain any unacceptable behaviour. Ultimately, if we follow our Values, we will provide services that are better for our patients and better for each other.

 

 

It is really important to keep our staff informed and engaged. If we have something to share, we will do it through a number of routes to try to get in front of everyone.
