PAHT 2030

We are on the verge of a defining moment in PAHT’s history.

What lies ahead is a journey of transformation and improvement that will lead us successfully into the future, enabling us to deliver modern, integrated and outstanding care that keeps our growing and ageing population healthier.

Our new hospital is key to us being able to achieve this ambitious vision.

Our PAHT 2030 vision is to be modern, integrated and outstanding.

Our Priorities

Our five priorities provide the focus to achieving that vision over the next 10 years: transforming our care, our culture, digital health, corporate transformation and our new hospital.

Our objectives

Our five core objectives: patients, people, performance, places and pounds hold us to account, keeping us grounded in reality and challenging us to keep improving the experience for our patients, visitors and people.

Our values

And throughout everything we do, we are guided at all times by our values: patient at heart, everyday excellence and creative collaboration.
