The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust!
The Trust finally reached its goal - on 1st April 2011 it became a foundation trust! Now it can focus on improving patient services instead of concentrating its efforts on meeting the many requirements of its foundation trust application. Patients will notice little change initially but long-term the Trust will be able to behave in a more commercial manner - sell its assets, borrow money, make plans without supervision from NHS London, but it will still be subject to overview by Monitor. The Community Voice, of which our Association is a member, will monitor the new Foundation Trust's plans closely and this page will keep our members posted.
