Working in partnership
The National Health Service (NHS) is one of the largest public sector organisations in the world. It was set up in 1948 to provide healthcare for all British Citizens based on need and not the ability to pay.

We are a NHS Foundation Trust. Foundation Trusts operate independently of the Department of Health, but remain part of the National Health Service. This gives us greater freedom and more formal links with patients and staff. We are accountable to them through an elected and appointed Council of Governors. There is also an independent regulator called Monitor to protect the public interest. To find out more about what it means to be a Foundation Trust click here.
