Vision and values

Our vision

"Creating a Healthier Hull"

The CCG aims to achieve this vision by working toward our strategic aims which have been determined by the health needs of the city, our patient’s expectations and the aspirations of our clinical leaders, to deliver sustainable services and improve health outcomes.

Our values

The CCG Board has developed the following values:

  • LISTEN – We will listen to all communities
  • VALUE – We will value, respect and respond to all (contributions)
  • CHALLENGE – We are ready to challenge and be challenged
  • INNOVATE – We will strive for excellence

In July 2015 our Board agreed to adopt a Behavioural Framework for CCG. Adoption of the Framework will provide clarity as to the behaviours required within the CCG to support and encourage leadership at all levels of the organisation. You can view this here

Our overall CCG strategic aims

  • Improve life expectancy and reduce health inequalities.

  • Work with partners to ensure services are integrated with those of the voluntary sector, community sector and the local authority in order to address the wider causes of poor health.
  • Commission health care that delivers quality outcomes is focused on the need of the individual that treats people with compassion and dignity and is delivered in the most appropriate setting.
  • Work with our partners to address the prevalence of smoking, obesity and substance misuse.
  • Reduce the variation in the quality of care.
  • Lead sustainable change to transform health care provision in Hull.

  • Commissioning jointly with the local authority where integration of health and social care is vital, especially for older people with complex health and social care needs.
  • Commissioning of care pathways where integration across primary, secondary and tertiary care is required.
