Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust Critique

The Trust provides a range of acute and specialist health services to well over three quaters of a million patients a year and is now a Foundation Trust.

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.

If you have any problems visit a doctor immediatly to solve any issues regarding your health.

Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust


The main objectives over the next 3 to 5 years are about improving services.  These can be grouped into six broad headings.
This fails to include all the areas of services provided within the NHS and it will be a challenge to ensure that the smaller services do not get marginalised.

The service headings are:

  • Mental Health

  • Learning Disabilities

  • Drug and Alcohol Service

  • Older People

  • Children

  • Primary and Community Care

The purpose of the new NHS is to deliver against the key objectives identified above cost effectively, whilst maintaining high standards of hygiene and care. The management and support services within the NHS must add value to the delivery of these services.

There are things that are more effectively done corporately. This may be because there is a corporate overview that local services will not have or because there are limited skills available that cannot be diluted.  However, accountability and responsibility is best kept at the point where decisions need to be made and will only be centralised when it is absolutely necessary.

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.
