About Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust
Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust is a district general hospital providing health care for the people of Huntingdonshire and surrounding areas. More than 160,000 people rely on it and its full range of acute hospital services. Hinchingbrooke is a member of Cambridge University Health Partners supporting excellence in healthcare, research and education for the people of Cambridgeshire and beyond.
At Hinchingbrooke, we put our patients at the heart of everything we do – any patient coming to us for treatment should feel confident that they will receive high quality, safe care. We recently published our first Patient Experience Strategy which embodies our commitment to providing patient centred care and will guide how we put patient experience at the heart of everything we do.
Hinchingbrooke Hospital is a modern purpose-built building opened in 1983, although some departments moved here from the Huntingdon County Hospital several years before. We provide a wide range of specialities, some in conjunction with Addenbrooke’s and Peterborough hospitals. Patients can access a wide range of specialities, including General Surgery, Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT), Ophthalmology, Orthopaedics, Urology, Vascular, Plastics, Breast Surgery and Gynaecology. Our hospital has 304 beds, as well as 23 cabins located in the Treatment Centre, a £22 million unit which opened in 2005. The Mulberry Suite is available for private patients.
The main purchaser of the hospital’s services is services is Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), and we also provide services to a range of CCGs across Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Norfolk, Lincolnshire and Suffolk.
Patient feedback helps us to ensure we continuously improve the services and care we provide at Hinchingbrooke. We welcome feedback from patients and visitors and our Patient Advice and Liason (PALS) team can be contacted on 01480 428964.
Our two priorities for this year are:
- To constantly improve the quality of our services, coming out of special measures
- To address and improve our financial position
