Foundation Trust Status

The Monitor Board has now met to consider the Trust's application for NHS Foundation Trust(FT) status. Unfortunately, the decision of the Monitor Board means that the Trust will now not be licensed as hoped on 1 August 2013. The Chairman thanked staff for all their hard work and support and for continuing to deliver safe and effective services to patients and confirmed the Board's aim to be able to satisfy all of Monitor's requirements within the next 12 months.
