The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust carries out nearly one million outpatient appointments, day case procedures and inpatient admissions annually. The population we serve is predominantly the people of Norfolk and north Suffolk, although some patients are referred from further afield especially to access specialist services available at this Trust.
NHS Foundation Trusts remain part of the NHS and continue to treat patients according to NHS quality standards and principles – free care based on need, not the ability to pay.
We became a NHS Foundation Trust on 1 May 2008 following a formal assessment by Monitor the independent regulator for NHS Foundation Trusts. We believe that becoming a NHS Foundation Trust is the best way for us to continue to develop and deliver the best range of quality services in a way that builds on the Trust’s values and aims.
In preparing to become a NHS Foundation Trust, we ran our first elections for a Council of Governors from January to April 2008.
