Vision and strategy: inadequate

  • Organisations we regulate

W2. Is there a clear vision and credible strategy to deliver high-quality sustainable care to people, and robust plans to deliver?

Characteristics of services we would rate as inadequate in this area

There is no current strategy, or the strategy is not underpinned by detailed, realistic objectives and plans for high-quality and sustainable delivery, and it does not reflect the health economy in which the service works. Staff do not understand how their role contributes to achieving the strategy.

There is no credible statement of vision and guiding values. Key stakeholders have not been engaged in the creation of the strategy. Staff are not aware of or supportive of, or do not understand, the vision and values, or they were developed without staff and wider engagement. There is no effective approach to monitoring, reviewing or providing evidence of progress against delivery of the strategy or plans. The strategy has not been translated into meaningful and measurable plans at all levels of the service.
