Our Vision and Values

Healthy Neighbourhoods, Happy Staff. This is at the heart of everything we do.

Our vision is a statement of purpose. It is why we exist.

Everyone who lives and works in Salford can realise their potential to live healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives, so that they can start well, live well and age well.

That’s Salford’s vision, that’s our vision. To find out more, please read Salford’s Locality Plan.

Our mission sets out how we intend to achieve this vision.

We will bring together GP practices in neighbourhoods so that they can work with others – health and social care services, the voluntary sector, community groups and local people – to make best use of available resources and make sure that everyone gets the right support, in the right place, at the right time.

To help achieve this mission we will focus our work on four key themes: Transformation, Neighbourhoods, Delivery and Effective Organisation.

Transformation: We will work with partners and local people to co-design and provide capability and leadership to create a system of care that is designed to create wellness and value. This is about creating the means in our neighbourhoods to make the necessary connections between key providers and local people to achieve the vision and mission.

Neighbourhood Support: We will improve access for local people to the resources they need to lead healthier lives through a strengthened and well connected network of independent primary care providers. This is about nurturing leadership within primary care, removing barriers and waste, and allowing the best to thrive and the struggling to be supported, so that the whole registered population gets a better deal.

Direct Delivery: We will deliver high quality primary care services that will provide inspiration, help set common standards, test new approaches to care and support, and provide a safe platform for those practices that need it. This is about making it real and modelling what is possible.

Effective Organisation: We will build an organisation that is collaborative, effective, responsive, safe, efficient and well led, with a sense of ownership by our wider stakeholders: partners and local people. This is about creating an exciting organisation, that gets things done, and goes about things in the right way.

Our Values

At Salford Primary Care Together, we have chosen four values to guide us in all our decisions and actions. These are:

Collaboration: We achieve more, better and faster by harnessing the strengths of all stakeholders in the system
Innovation: We try new approaches without fear
Learning: We reflect on our actions and seek knowledge to improve
Compassion: The care of local people is at the heart of everything we do
