Foundation trusts are new flagship hospitals in England and awarded to high performing organisations. We were approved to be a foundation trust on April 1 2004 - one of the first in the country, due to our excellent performance, which has continued with the Foundation Trust being rated as 'excellent' for use of resources and 'good' for quality of services, in the Care Quality Commission's Annual Health Check.
