Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust’s mission is to provide safe and compassionate care, every time with a focus on providing right care, right place, right time, first time.

As a pioneering Trust we bring together acute and community services – delivering them when and where our patients will most benefit and we work hard to deliver this.  We have one of the best stroke services in the region, some of the lowest infection rates in the country and excellent surgical outcomes, but we are always striving to do better.

Working together with our community we are continually looking for innovative ways to improve our performance and provide our patients with the service that they deserve and our staff can be proud of.

We are well on the way to achieving this.
