Frimley Health has unveiled a bold new vision to be a leader in health and wellbeing in the next decade, delivering exceptional services across the region.

This exciting ambition is at the heart of our new strategy for 2020 to 2025, which we have developed over the last year with thousands of staff, patients and members, as well as our partners, wider local communities and leading healthcare experts.

Trust chief executive Neil Dardis set out the strategy, Our future FHFT, at our Annual Members’ Meeting at Farnborough International Exhibition Centre on Tuesday 17 September.

Proud of our past achievements, the five-year plan sets a new vision for Frimley Health to lead on, with partners, in the future, focusing on health and wellbeing, and delivering excellence.

It is guided by our values – committed to excellence, working together and facing the future. It is also aligned with NHS England’s Long Term Plan, which sets the overall direction for the health service, and our plans in the Frimley Health and Care Integrated System. Frimley Health & Care Integrated Care System.

Neil said: "We know that healthcare and the needs of our communities are changing. The demands of the future will mean that we need different solutions to those we have used in the past.

"Our aim is to be at the forefront of making that change happen to ensure that Frimley Health continues to provide outstanding care in the future.

"Our thinking is rooted in providing the best care for our patients and being the best employer for our staff. We want to make things easier and we want to work with our partners in the health and care system to support our communities to lead long and healthy lives.

"We are proud of Our future FHFT and all that it aspires to achieve. We are certain it will inspire confidence in our ability to deliver exceptional services for our communities and demonstrates our commitment to our patients, people, partners and communities."
