Mission and values

Our vision is to deliver a caring, healthier, and safer Edinburgh.

We want to provide the right care, at the right time, in the right place. We will support people to be well at home, and in their community, for as long as possible. We believe that people should only stay in hospital where there’s a medical need and we will do our best to get them home, or to a homely setting, as quickly as possible.

Our six strategic priorities are:

  1. Prevention and early interventions
  2. Tackling inequalities
  3. Person-centred care
  4. Managing our resources effectively
  5. Making best use of capacity across the system
  6. Right care, right place, right time.
