Foundation Trust

Click here to become a member today!


The RUH is now an NHS Foundation Trust. This means we are free from central government control, but we continue to deliver free care based on need, not ability to pay. We can be more flexible about how our money is invested in patient care and are more accountable to patients, staff and visitors through a body called the Council of Governors.

Being an NHS Foundation Trust does not mark the end of our journey to improve care, but it is a milestone along the way, and we're looking forward to continuing our journey together, with you. If you'd like to know more detail about how we will operate as an NHS Foundation Trust hospital, you can read our Constitution.
