Four Pillars Team of the Year

This is about the values that we share, and the behaviours that we demonstrate every day at work. Put simply, our Four Pillars sum up who we are, and what we’re about. We’re looking for a team that embraces the Four Pillars in their contribution to delivering outstanding compassionate care. This will be a team that goes ‘above and beyond’ in their work; looks after each other; and can evidence how they: Put The Patient First; Go See; Work Together to Get Results; and do the Must-Dos.
