Our values

At City & Hackney CCG, we have thought carefully about what our shared organisational values are. In Summer 2019 we consulted our Governing Body, our Patient and Public Involvement Committee (PPI Committee), and our staff in order to pull together a list of what we consider to be our core values.

Throughout this process, we took into consideration the following:

  • How we should work with CCG staff, system partners and patients;
  • How we should use our resources;
  • What outputs we should endeavour to deliver across all areas of business;
  • How we need to behave to ensure we meet the standards set by our patients, partners and regulatory bodies.

We also looked at other CCGs and providers to compare our priorities and to ensure consistency in line with wider NHS values.

Below is the mission statement and values that have been agreed:
