Overview

staff helping patient use diagnostic services

'Caring and compassionate', 'accessible and responsive', 'professional and knowledgeable', 'open and accountable' are the values we aim for at our hospitals. With a Healthcare Commission annual health check rating in 2008 of ‘Good’ for both Quality of Services and Use of Resources, the Trust has a reputation for providing fast, efficient, high quality care with some of the lowest infection rates of any acute hospital in the region. We have a major focus on patient nutrition and hospital cleanliness to improve patients’ experiences. One of the largest Trusts in the region, we provide general hospital services and many specialist services, with A&E at two sites. 92% of surgical procedures are carried out as day case or short stay surgery and an increasing number of hospital clinics are provided in the community, including blood tests at a local supermarket. The Trust also has a large research agenda.

Departments and services

We provide an extensive range of outpatient, inpatient, day case, diagnostic and one stop services, including a wide range of clinics in community facilities outside the main hospitals. You can read about all our services on our website: www.swbh.nhs.uk
