Who are we?
Cheltenham General Hospital and Gloucestershire Royal Hospital are part of Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest hospital trusts in the country and provides high quality acute elective and specialist care at both Cheltenham General and Gloucestershire Royal Hospitals. Our mission is to improve health by putting patients at the centre of excellent specialist care.
The Trust was formed in 2002 and became one of the first foundation trusts in July 2004. Our hospitals provide emergency care, specialist inpatient care and outpatient appointments to our urban and rural communities within Gloucestershire and further afield. We serve a population of more than 560,000 for acute care and a population of over 750,000 for cancer services.
Both hospitals are district general hospitals with a great tradition of providing high quality hospital services.Some specialist departments are based at either Cheltenham General or Gloucestershire Royal hospitals so that we can make the best use of our expertise and specialist equipment and facilities.
In recent years we have made significant financial investment in both hospitals, resulting in state-of-the-art buildings and facilities for patients. We also provide a range of outreach services such as outpatients clinics, diagnostics and minor surgery, in a range of locations around the county including community hospitals, helping to provide care closer to patients' homes.
During 2012 and 2013 a number of changes are taking place within trauma, stroke and vascular services all with the aim of providing better services to patients.
During the year our average activity includes more than 18,000 planned inpatient admissions, 62,000 emergency inpatient admissions, 74,000 day case admissions, 430,000 consultant OP attendances, 105,000 A & E attendances and 6,000 births.
