Foundation Trust

We are planning an application to become an NHS Foundation Trust. We believe NHS Foundation status will help us work with our staff and local people to continue to improve the performances of our services. Already more than 7,500 local people are involved in our ‘membership’, taking part in Trust activities and shaping our priorities.
