‘Working together to empower people to lead their best life’ is the one, unified vision for our organisation and all our partners working together across Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire.

Our vision, the result we want to achieve for local people, informs the present and inspires the action needed to make change happen. It is underpinned by three core principles:

  1. Collective voice – working together as a collaboration and one whole system
  2. Healthy communities – empowering people to lead on their health with their families, their communities and health professionals
  3. Stories and strengths – holding people’s strengths, stories and experiences, and what matters to them at the heart of our system

Developed by colleagues across the organisation, our five core values underpin the way we work and help to guide our actions and the decisions we make for local people and communities.


We also have a comprehensive People Strategy (docx 1.85MB) across BSW Together - our Integrated Care System (ICS) - which describes our commitment to our colleagues and will support our ambition to empower people to live their best life in Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire.
