About us

Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (BHFT) was formed in April 2001 and successfully became licensed as a Foundation Trust in May 2007. In April 2011 the community services which were previously the provider arms of NHS Berkshire East and NHS Berkshire West PCTs merged with the Trust.

The main centres of population are Reading in the West of the County and Slough in the East. Within Berkshire there are also major populations at Newbury, Wokingham in the West and Bracknell, Maidenhead, Windsor and Ascot in the East, as well and many significant urban developments in smaller towns forming essentially a single conurbation along the M4 Corridor.

Berkshire is characterised by concentrations of population and large rural areas. It includes some of the most affluent and least deprived communities in the country, but also has pockets of markedly deprived wards. The Trust is part of two Integrated Care Systems (Frimley ICS and Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire & Berkshire West ICS) and partners with six local unitary authorities.

The trust has an outstanding CQC rating.

BHFT employs over 4000 people working from more than 100 sites.

At Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, our mission is to maximise independence and quality of life. Our vision is to be the best place to give care, the best place to get care.
