Foundation Trust

Isle of Wight NHS Trust is applying to become an NHS Foundation Trust

We believe that becoming an NHS Foundation Trust will bring important benefits to the Island and the patients we serve. We will be able to be more innovative, efficient and improve quality to provide even better services to people. As an NHS Foundation Trust, we will have a membership and a Council of Governors. This means that the public, people who use our services, carers and staff will be able to shape the organisation and have even more of an influence in the way it is run.

The consultation document explained the benefits of becoming a NHS Foundation Trust. It also shares our plans for the next five years, our governance and membership proposals and it lets you know how you can get involved with your local provider of ambulance, community, hospital and mental health services.

The consultation, which ended on 11th January 2013, asked questions which cover three areas:

The views expressed will help shape the future of the Trust. We also invite you to become a member, and possibly a Governor, of our Trust and have a greater say in how we are run, and how your health services are provided.   Your views on our proposals will form part of our application to become an NHS Foundation Trust.
