Visions and Values

In 2021, Spectrum sharpened its vision and mission to focus more intensely on the priorities which matter most to us – delivering high-quality and much-needed healthcare to vulnerable people.

Spectrum’s approach is to always put patients at the heart of what we do.

We are building on our ambition to deliver the best in health and wellbeing on a values-driven ethos and to maintain the highest standards of patient care and service. We are an expanding organisation, but we aim to grow without compromising on quality and social value.
