About the Trust
University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust provides services to some 1.3 million people living in Southampton and south Hampshire, plus specialist services such as neurosciences, cardiac services and children's intensive care to more than 3 million people in central southern England and the Channel Islands.
The Trust is also a major centre for teaching and research in association with the University of Southampton and partners including the Medical Research Council and Wellcome Trust.
UHS gained foundation trust status on 1 October 2011. The Trust was formerly known as Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust (SUHT).
Every year our 9,500 staff:
treat around 140,000 inpatients and day patients, including about 50,000 emergency admissions;
see approximately 460,000 people at outpatient appointments; and
deal with around 120,000 cases in our emergency department.
Providing these services costs more than £1.6 million a day.
