RUH Strategic Direction: 2009-2013

Our Strategic Direction

This section builds upon the Trust Strategic Direction published in November 2004. It presents the next stage of development for the Trust.

During the period 2009 -2013 the RUH will work to become nationally recognised as a centre of excellence for patient care.

To support this it will achieve NHS Foundation Trust status and begin the redevelopment of its site in a way that meets the healthcare needs of the population it serves and that is sustainable within the predicted restrained economic climate from 2011 onwards.

The Strategic Direction document has been put together with input from staff, patients, carers, General Practitioners and local health and social care partners.    The following document is a précis document and does not contain the appendices that give more detail in specific areas. The full document is available on the Trust Website under the Tab “About Us” Objectives and Business Plan.

RUH Strategic Direction: 2009–2013  
(This document opens in a new window)

The Strategy seeks to describe the overall development plan of the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust (RUH) during the period 2009 – 2013. Although brief it contains sufficient detail to enable staff, patients and our partners to understand our ambitions and how we intend to make improvements to the way we work.
