Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust’s mission is to provide safe and compassionate care, every time with a focus on providing right care, right place, right time, first time.

As a pioneering Trust we bring together acute and community services – delivering them when and where our patients will most benefit and we work hard to deliver this.  We have one of the best stroke services in the region, some of the lowest infection rates in the country and excellent surgical outcomes, but we are always striving to do better.

Working together with our community we are continually looking for innovative ways to improve our performance and provide our patients with the service that they deserve and our staff can be proud of.

We are well on the way to achieving this.

Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust celebrates Random Acts of Kindness Week 11 -17 February
20 Feb 2019

To celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Week, Trust staff were encouraged to get involved in a range of activities to show their appreciation of colleagues and the wider community. The week launched with a video in which staff and patients thanked colleagues, teams or departments for their support. The film also included a message of thanks from Chief executive, Neil Macdonald: “I’ve just spent the last two weeks visiting all our sites across the county and I just want to say a big thank you to all our staff. I’ve seen some amazing things, some outstanding practice and some humblingly good patient care, so I just want to say a big thank you from me on behalf of the board.” The response has been overwhelming and creative with staff making handmade gems for colleagues, managers taking their teams for lunch and the library team waiving overdue library fines for a day. In addition to this, staff gifted things to each other and donated items to local charities.
