Our commitment to our patients

Our Trust is committed to providing high quality care at all times to our patients at the Alexandra, Kidderminster and Worcestershire Royal Hospitals.

We expect our all staff to respect our patients’ rights to privacy and dignity and we stress to them the importance of ensuring that there is in all our hospitals a culture which values privacy and dignity.

Privacy refers to freedom from intrusion and relates to all information and practice that is personal or sensitive in nature to an individual.

Dignity is being worthy of respect.

We want our patients to feel that they matter – that their values, beliefs and personal relationships will be respected. This applies to ALL our patients – regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, social or cultural backgrounds, or their psychological or physical requirements.
