There has been significant investment and development in the Trust, with work recently starting in the construction of a Radiotherapy Centre, which means that patients will no longer need to travel to Oxford for treatment. This represents a huge milestone for the Trust and, more importantly, improving levels of care for our patients. Additionally, we have been successful in securing �15m to improve urgent and emergency care at GWH by replacing the current Urgent Care Centre with a new Urgent Treatment Centre. This is in addition to our successful bid for �30m to expand and improve services as part of our Way Forward Programme.
Our STAR values are at the heart of everything we do. You can expect to see them in the way we act and the way we treat each other. Our values make us who we are.
