Who we are and what we do
We are an NHS trust of around 8,000 people, providing care for the population of Gloucestershire and beyond.
About our Trust
Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust received authorisation on 1 July 2004.
It was formed from Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Trust, which was established following a reconfiguration of health services in Gloucestershire in 2002. The Trust provides acute hospital services from two large district general hospitals, Cheltenham General Hospital (CGH) and Gloucestershire Royal Hospital (GRH). Maternity Services are also provided at Stroud Maternity Hospital. Outpatient clinics and some surgery services are provided by Trust staff from community hospitals throughout Gloucestershire. The Trust also provided services at the satellite oncology centre in Hereford County hospital.
Our strategic objectives, mission and vision
To achieve the best for our patients, their families, our staff and our communities, we need cohesive and focused priorities for the coming years. It is important that we all pull together, with the focus on patients and our strategic objectives will ensure that this happens. If we achieve our objectives, we will move closer towards our vision of the future: Best Care for Everyone.
Five-year Strategic Plan: 2019 - 2024
Our five-year Strategic Plan sets out an ambitious yet achievable programme to transform hospital services and provide care for the next generation of patients at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, Cheltenham General Hospital and Stroud Maternity Unit. This plan, which we call Our Journey to Outstanding, includes significant and exciting transformation that will ensure we achieve our vision of Best Care for Everyone.

We provide a wide range of specialist hospital services from our two main sites at Gloucestershire Royal and Cheltenham General Hospitals, as well as maternity services at Stroud Maternity Hospital.We have ambitious plans for the future to help us achieve our vision of delivering the Best Care for Everyone.

Simple guides to our Trust
These Simple Guides have been produced to give rapid, at-a-glance information about a range of key topics and are designed to help colleagues to easily understand the way we do things at the Trust. Each has a brief outline of the key points and has useful links to the intranet or external websites that can provide additional information. The intention is for the guides to be extended to cover additional topics as and when they arise.
