Our Vision

The team at the Hospice of the Good Shepherd believes that everyone in Cheshire West, Chester, Ellesmere Port and Deeside should be able to access excellent end of life care and support. This supports our vision.

Striving for excellence is at the heart of everything we do

Our Priorities

It is important that we have a set of strategic priorities to ensure we deliver the best quality care and services needed by those who live in our catchment area. Our business plan is based upon these strategic priorities.

Our Values

Agreeing and setting our core values was important to the Hospice and our patients because it helps us concentrate and focus on getting key things right and creating an environment where we can all achieve our best. We asked our team of dedicated staff what they felt our core values were and following consultation the following values were agreed by our Board of Trustees as the foundation and building blocks for our future care.  Our values are built into our day to day practices and our strategy development for the Hospice’s future sustainability.
