Our Strategy

Strong roots, global reach

We’ve built King's strategy from the ground up, listening to what you have to say about the priorities for our Trust. We’ve heard from more than 4,500 staff, patients and other members of our community to find out what is important and what we should focus on in the future. Using this feedback, our vision is to be bold:

  • brilliant people
  • outstanding care
  • leaders in research, innovation and education
  • diversity, equality and inclusion at the heart of everything we do

Having a strategy is critical. It helps us to plan for the future. It helps everyone feel part of one team. The challenges from COVID-19, as well as a rapidly changing NHS, mean we need to identify our priorities so that we are always doing our best for the people we care for and our staff.

The golden threads – which will help us achieve our ambitions – are weaved through our strategy. We will be: person-centred, digitally-enabled, focused on sustainability, and one Team King’s.

We must do all this while embodying King's values as a kind, respectful team. Below we set out our ambitions for 2021-26.
