Our corporate strategy 2017-2022

West London NHS Trust has developed this strategy to outline our plans for the organisation for the next five years.
It sets out the vision of the Board and other senior leaders in the Trust to be a leading provider of outstanding health and social care in West London and beyond, and outlines our medium term plans for what we need to do to achieve this vision and the benefits we hope will be delivered for our patients, carers, staff and local populations.

Our mission, vision and values
In 2014, the Trust (then, West London Mental Health NHS Trust) launched a review of our purpose and goals, with an aim to ensure that our mission, vision and objectives were relevant to our service users and

meet national and local ambitions and challenges. The review provided an opportunity for a far-reaching discussion and generated 4,900 comments on a web-based platform to influence a new mission, vision and values framework for the organisation.

Since then, the NHS has sought to tackle sustained financial pressures and demand related to an aging population, and published a Five Year Forward View (2014), and a Five Year Forward View for Mental Health (2016) and locally commissioners and providers in North West London have defined their Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) (2016) to tackle whole system pressures and the health and wellbeing, care and quality, and finance and efficiency gaps.

During this time, West London was also succes

sful in its ambition to diversify beyond only delivering comprehensive mental health care, and we are now the lead provider for public health services in Ealing (One You Ealing), intermediate care services in Ealing (Home ward Ealing), as well as delivering intermediate care and reablement services in Hammersmith and Fulham as part of the Community Independence Service partnership.

We have constructed new inpatient facilities for our specialist services in West London and at Broadmoor Hospital.

We have also been successful in our bids to pioneer New Models of Care, taking on the management of commissioning budgets on behalf of NHS England for children and young people’s specialist mental health care as lead provider, and for forensic services in partnership with other North London NHS trusts.
Despite all of these changes, we believe our mission of promoting hope and wellbeing together, and values of togetherness, responsibility, excellence and caring are as relevant today as when they were developed and in our strategy consultation in 2017, West London recommitted ourselves to these ambitions.
