Building a Better Health Service

Values in Action - Our People, Our Culture

Values in Action aims to build a culture in Our Health Service that creates a more positive environment for staff and improved experiences for patients and service users.

Every day thousands of Our Health Service staff across Ireland live our values of Care, Compassion, Trust and Learning. Values in Action is about building a culture in Our Health Service that reflects these values, so that they are evident every day, in every workplace.

Our Health Service made two decisions, to:

  • Translate our values into specific behaviours
  • Start a social movement to make sure that they are not just words, but become the core of Our Health Service culture.

Values in Action is led by staff from across the health service, from all grades and disciplines, who are working together to create a grassroots movement to spread the behaviours that reflect our values. The behaviours are visible units of action that can be universally understood and adopted by everyone.

It’s going to take all of us, from all grades, roles, disciplines and backgrounds, working together to change Our Health Service for the better.
