Respect and Dignity – Whakaute me whakarangatira
This value commits us to honour the autonomy and worth of all people. To work in partnership with colleagues, patients, their whānau and people in the community.

A commitment to excellence through sharing knowledge, skills, and expertise within Hospice and the Nelson Tasman community. We do this with ongoing quality improvement, regular training and a devotion to best practice in all aspects of our work.
Trust – Tiakitanga
