Our values and behaviours are:

Flexibility – seeking continuous improvements to the way that we work, adapting to find solutions to difficult problems.

Integrity – acting with the highest standards of integrity and professionalism.

Respect – treating everyone with dignity and respect, valuing diversity, working in partnership, and sharing knowledge and best practice.

Serving the public – being proud to put the public interest at the centre of everything we do.

Transparency – being truthful, open and accountable for our actions.
