Values Based Appraisal

All staff must have (as a minimum) an annual Values Based Appraisal meeting.   

  • Values Based Appraisal is for everyone and is a focussed conversation around development and recordable outcomes for staff.  Your appraisal should cover the development you need, the value you bring, and the position(s) that best suits your skill now and into the future.

An outcome of the VBA meeting should be, agreed work objectives or performance expectations which relate to the UHB's strategic objectives. The VBA meeting is also linked to the pay progression as set out in the NHS Wales Pay Progression Policy. You can find out more on the VBA and Pay Progression Toolkit page.

The LED team play an important role in co-ordinating the VBR process and providing training to ensure that VBAs are meaningful and assist you with in meeting your personal and professional objectives, and your career pathway.
