Vision and strategy: requires improvement

  • 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 requires improvement in this area

The strategy and plans have some significant gaps or weaknesses that undermine their credibility, and do not fully reflect the health economy in which the service works. They may not have been recently created or reviewed. Staff do not always understand how their role contributes to achieving the strategy. The statement of vision and guiding values is incomplete, out of date, or not fully credible. Results of stakeholder consultation are not always taken into account in strategies or plans. Staff are not always aware of, support, or do not understand the vision and values, or have not been fully involved in developing them. Progress against delivery of the strategy and plans is not consistently or effectively monitored or reviewed and there is no evidence of progress. Leaders at all levels are not always held to account for the delivery of the strategy.
