Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust
- Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust
We are one of the largest hospital Trusts in North Kent with services on four sites serving a local population of over 500,000 people.
Our vision is to be an outstanding hospital Trust providing the best possible care for our patients that is safe, well-coordinated, in the right place and designed around the patient’s needs. Everything we do is guided by our vision and core values.
Essential to our success are our staff. We are committed to ensuring the Trust is an excellent place to work. Staff responses to our most recent staff survey show that on a number of key findings we remain amongst the very best acute Trusts in the NHS. We believe this feedback has been enhanced by clarity about Trust values which were developed with staff and have been embedded throughout the organisation. We value the development of our staff and have held Investors in People since 2005, and have recently been reaccredited with Investors in People Silver award.
We have a strong focus on innovation and improvement to deliver the best care possible to our patients. As our local populations are increasing our services are undergoing a period of expansion and service development. We are continuously looking for ways to develop models of best practice as well as new ways of working to enhance and improve the services we offer to our local populations. We are a founding member of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Healthcare Alliance, introducing new models of care to improve clinical outcomes for our patients.
