We believe a well-defined strategy is the foundation of success. The Priory Plan 2023-25 outlines our 7 strategic goals and how we intend to achieve them over the next three years. This strategy was developed in collaboration with Priory colleagues, partners and the people we support. It contains numerous examples of how we are putting our vision into practice already across our healthcare and adult social care services.
Within each chapter of our plan there is a short summary of each of our strategic goals, with examples of the KPIs we need to meet to achieve them, and case studies of our successes.
Since July 2021, we have been part of MEDIAN, based in Germany, and together we share the combined vision of becoming the leading European provider of mental health and rehabilitation services. As a group MEDIAN is active in the UK, Germany and Spain. Our combine purpose is Live your life which underpins everything we do: it means supporting people to live as fully and independently as possible so that they can achieve their personal goals and have a good quality of living.
Our strategic goals
The starting point for our 3-year strategy is our seven strategic goals. These are our big picture objectives and every plan we develop we develop over the next three years will support one or more of the goals.
How we developed our strategy
We launched our 7 strategic goals in September 2022 and spent time in the months that followed engaging with our colleagues and understanding how they felt they could deliver against these goals in their areas. We also engaged with patients and resident groups. Alongside surveys, interviews and workshops, we developed a toolkit to help colleagues run focus groups themselves and gather feedback. This gave additional insight into some of the challenges our colleagues and the people we support experience, and how are strategy could support them.
We then developed nine enabling strategies to drive the Priory plan forward in the following areas: data, digital, estates, IT, marketing and communications, people, procurement, quality and research and effectiveness. Within Priory, we have made sure there are regular opportunities to discuss the implementation of our strategy and feedback on progress.
