Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Grading:  - Requires Improvement

Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides acute hospital services to a population of around 612,000 people in Gloucestershire and the surrounding areas.

 

The trust has three main locations that are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which are Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, Cheltenham General Hospital and Stroud Maternity Hospital. There are 1,072 beds across these three hospitals. The trust has six further locations registered at which the trust runs outpatient clinics and provides the imaging services. We did not visit these locations as part of this inspection.

 

We inspected this trust as part of our in-depth hospital inspection programme. The trust was selected as it is an example of a low risk trust according to our new intelligent monitoring model. It has been in the low risk group since March 2014. Our inspection was carried out in two parts: the announced visit, which took place on the 10–13 March 2015, and the unannounced visit, which took place during the evening of 20 March 2015.

 

 

The trust’s services are managed through a divisional structure that covers all the hospitals within the trust, with some staff rotating between the three sites of Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, Cheltenham General Hospital and Stroud Maternity Hospital, therefore there are significant similarities between the three location reports.
