Southampton General Hospital

About the Trust

University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust provides services to some 1.9 million people living in Southampton and south Hampshire, plus specialist services such as neurosciences, cardiac services and children's intensive care to more than 3.7 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.

Every year our 11,500 staff:

  • treat around 150,000 inpatients and day patients, including about 50,000 emergency admissions;
  • see over 624,000 people at outpatient appointments; and
  • deal with around 135,000 cases in our emergency department.

Providing these services costs £1.9 million a day.

Our vision

Our vision

We value our colleagues both within the hospital and across the health and social care sector because we know that they are working beside us with a common purpose.

So in our vision we are setting out who we are and what we stand for, as well as describing the current challenges we face and our priorities for the future.

We hope this document will inspire you to believe, as we do, that UHS has the vision, the people and the determination to create a better future for our patients.
