Our application is underpinned by a new vision statement to compliment the Trust's Foundation status (2007)

Our vision is simple.....

'Working in partnership we want to be the first choice provider of health care services to the people of Portsmouth, South East Hampshire and beyond'.

The Trust would like to invite residents of Portsmouth and SE Hampshire to become members of our Foundation Trust.

It is widely assumed that it is impossible to get an NHS dentist these days, but that is historical. For a while it was almost impossible to get to see an NHS dentist without being on a waiting list for months if not years. However, if you now look up dentists on the NHS website and give your local one a call and ask if they accept NHS patients, you will probably be pleasantly surprised.

nHS is facing one of the most significant periods

The NHS is facing one of the most significant periods of change and development in its history.  The future outlined in the Government's White Paper (Equity and excellence: Liberating the NHS - 2012) and other guidelines places much greater emphasis on the following aspects of delivering health services: 

  • Partnership working

  • Improving quality

  • Reducing inequalities

  • Greater responsiveness

The majority of people working in the NHS welcome this change of emphasis, away from the competitive approach of the early 2000s to a more co-operative "whole system" approach.
Primary care trusts and Strategic health authorities have been created to help deliver the new NHS.  These Trusts and Authorities provides more than 60 services which are very briefly summarised below:

  • Community nursing and therapy services to people in their homes and local communities.

  • Community mental health services supported by specialist facilities.

  • Community Hospitals.

  • Community Services for people with learning disabilities supported by specialist facilities.

Over 1.5 million people (of whom about 80% are involved in day-to-day clinical services for patients) are employed by the NHS to work in services to a total population of about 62 million people living in the United Kingdom.

Portsmouth is a city on the rise - both in physical and profile terms.  A UK city already transformed by significant public and private sector investment, as demonstrated by Gunwharf Quays and the Spinnaker Tower, will be further enhanced by over £1.5 billion that has been committed to its physical regeneration by 2016 -14

The home of the Royal Navy and internationally renowned visitor destination is also home to world leading businesses such as BAE Systems, EADS Astrium, IBM and Pall Europe. New developments such as Voyager Park and Lakeside North Harbour are helping to ensure that Portsmouth continues to be an attractive location for many businesses.

"Shaping the Future of Portsmouth" is the city's physical, social and economic regeneration strategy that is being implemented by the city council in partnership with the local business community.  Once the home of great writers like Charles Dickens and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, we want you to relocate and invest here to help us write Portsmouth's next chapter.

The wider city region that encompasses the towns of Fareham, Gosport and Havant is also being enhanced as a place for business, residents and visitors.  New developments include the Solent Enterprise Zone at Daedalus that is helping reinforce this region's reputation as a destination of choice for marine, aerospace and aviation businesses.
