Company Description

Our patients are at the heart of everything that we do, providing you with safe and compassionate care, every time. Our focus is on providing right care, right place, right time, first time and everything we do is aimed at delivering high-quality care when and where you need it.

Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust has around 6,000 highly-trained, qualified doctors, nurses, midwives, health visitors, therapists, healthcare scientists and other support staff caring for more than half a million patients from Buckinghamshire and neighbouring counties every year.

We deliver this care in a range of ways; from community health services provided in people’s homes or from one of our local bases, to hospitals at Stoke Mandeville, Wycombe and Amersham.

And we are proud of the nationally recognised services that we provide. Stoke Mandeville Hospital is home to the internationally recognised National Spinal Injuries Centre; our stroke service is one of the best in the region and we are a regional centre for burn care, plastic surgery and dermatology.

We aren't complacent though and we continue to strive for success – building on our performance to improve our services for our patients and our community. 

We are committed to providing safe and compassionate care, every time and we won’t be satisfied until we are providing high-quality, healthcare to every patient, every time, first time.

We want to be bold in how we deliver care to our patients.  Over the next five years we will radically change the way we deliver healthcare and move away from the hospital being the first point of contact.  Working with our partners, such as GPs, mental health services and social care, we will build and develop our community and primary care services so that patients can access health advice, support and care in their communities and closer to their homes.

We have set out our strategy and plans for how we intend to achieve this -  click here to view our strategic priorities  - and we are measured and monitored by our Trust Board and a range of other agencies to ensure that we meet our performance standards.
