‚ÄčAbout us

Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust serves a population of approximately 570,000 people across Hampshire and parts of west Berkshire.

Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust came into being in January 2012 as a result of the integration of Basingstoke and North Hampshire NHS Foundation Trust, which achieved Foundation Trust status in 2006, and Winchester and Eastleigh Healthcare Trust. It is an NHS provider and care is free at the point of delivery.

Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust employs around 6,000 staff and has a turnover of over £390 million a year (2017/18). There are around 15,000 public and staff members. As a Foundation Trust it has directly accountable to its members through the governors. Council of Governors represent the interests of their constituencies and influence the future plans of the Foundation Trust.
