Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust is no ordinary NHS hospital. We look different, feel different, and act different. And, thanks to our unique partnership with Circle, we have all of the experience and expertise of our NHS heritage, backed up by the innovation and ambition of our Circle partners.
Whether you want to be a Nurse, Consultant, or part of the vital network of professionals who support the infrastructure and environment needed to provide the best patient care, when you join Hinchingbrooke you’re part of a family. That’s the beauty of a hospital like ours – we’re big enough to strive to be the best, small enough to care, and dedicated to your continued development and support.
The answer is, we put our people in the driving seat, giving them the opportunity to instigate change. Our executive board is made up of nine practicing clinicians, elected by their peers and supported by four managers. These clinical leads are each responsible for a clinical divisional unit and are accountable for their own budget and their team, reducing the gap between our Board and our frontline staff.
Not only this, our organisation’s vision was written by our people, and it was our people that set our goal to become a top ten district general hospital – in fact they wanted us to be number one. To make their vision a reality, 1200 of our staff came together to shape our business plan and we captured their ideas under four simple headings: clinical outcomes, patient experience, value for money and engaged staff. And so, our 16 point plan was born, a simple pocket-sized guide to realising our goals. You can read it here.
