More than 3500 patients and colleagues helped develop our values and behaviours. They describe how we expect everyone who works here to behave with others - patients, whānau, colleagues, providers and other organisations. They apply to all of us, whatever our role or level. 



Kind - Manaakitanga

Looking after our people: we respect and support each other. Our hospitality and kindness foster better care.

Open - Pono

Being sincere: we listen, hear and communicate openly and honestly, and with consideration for one another. Treat people how they would like to be treated.

Positive - Whaiwhakaaro

Best action: we are thoughtful, bring a positive attitude and are always looking to do things better.

Community - Whanaungatanga

As family: we are genuine, we nurture and maintain relationships to promote and build on all the strengths in our community.
