Overview

Patients with physio

Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust provide a wide range of high quality acute and community services from three acute hospital sites in Amersham, Stoke Mandeville and Wycombe, five community hospitals at Thame, Marlow, Buckingham, Chalfonts and Gerrards Cross and Waterside, and a number of community sites across the county. 

Specialist services include our regional dermatology, allergy and skin cancer centre, burns care and plastics sub-regional centre, cardiac services and the National Spinal Injuries Centre.

Latest figures from the Health Protection Agency show that over the last year, infections continue to remain low in our hospitals. We have halved the rate of Clostridium difficile, with 2009/10 seeing just two cases per 10,000 bed days compared to four last year. The average UK rate for 2009/10 was 3.6. The Trust also had below the national average of MRSA cases per 1,000 bed days, reporting 0.49 cases against an average of 0.50 nationally.

More than 6,000 staff serve residents across Buckinghamshire, Thame (Oxfordshire), Tring (Hertfordshire) and Leighton Buzzard (Bedfordshire) - a combined population of 500,000. It serves a much larger population, 1.5m, for burns and plastic services and 14m for spinal injuries
