On 1 February 2012 our unique 10 year partnership with Circle started, and Hinchingbrooke Hospital became the first NHS Trust to be managed by an independent company.
We’re still an NHS hospital with NHS staff and NHS premises, but thanks to the Circle partnership we’re able to make some positive changes to the way that we manage our business.
1200 of our 1700 hospital staff came together to share their vision for the transformation of our hospital and they decided that their goal would be to become one of the top ten district general hospitals in the country by being the best in four areas:
- patient safety
- patient experience
- staff engagement
- value for money
