Our Vision 

To be recognised as leading healthcare in the NHS, excelling in Quality, Safety, Patient experience, research, innovation and teaching, dedicated to improving health and well-being.

‘Living our values - Putting our heart into what we do’

The values and the behavioural framework have been developed by staff from across all of our care settings and shared with patients, families and local communities to enable us to live our values and deliver the best patient care.

CMFT aims to be a fulfilling and enjoyable place to work. We know that the right attitude and behaviours impact on a positive patient and staff experience. We also recognise the crucial role that each and every one of us plays in helping to achieve our vision and objective of making patients central to everything we do.
