Our Values

Our Values – Helping you to THRIVE

At Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, our values underpin everything we do, allowing us to achieve our vision – to attract the best people, value and develop them, so that the teams they work in deliver outstanding care to our patients.

We recruit based on our values, too. This allows us to find the very best people for our organisation.
