Every organisation has its own culture.  Culture is simply defined as the beliefs and underlying values that determine how we do what we do; how we behave to each other and how we carry out our work.  Values such as compassion and integrity help us to build positive relationships with our colleagues, patients and the public to provide us with a healthy work environment.

A culture that embraces our diversity and encourages our collective knowledge and experiences means we contribute a wider range of skills in providing care. 

Our aim is to promote the behaviours that lead to healthy workplaces and  take collective action to eliminate those behaviours that undermine our achievement of this.


Te Pou - Values informed practice

Values informed practice is about recognising people’s values and understanding how to work with them. The ultimate aim is to enable better ways of working and better outcomes for people accessing services, their whānau - and for people working in services.
