Where your care is delivered
Our Trust buildings and infrastructure
At Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust our focus is on providing the right care, in the right place, at the right time and everything we do is aimed at delivering high-quality care when and where you need it. Although our teams of healthcare professionals are committed to providing you with the very best healthcare treatment and support, many of the buildings from which they have to deliver that care do not meet the needs of modern-day healthcare.
You should expect more, and we want to offer you better facilities.
The Trust runs its services from 12 different sites across the area. Four of these sites are hospitals providing inpatient services with community services being run out of the other eight sites. Some of our buildings allow other healthcare providers, such as Oxford Health, Frimley and North West London Dental and some charities, to deliver services within Buckinghamshire.
We have some of the oldest estate in the NHS:
- A hospital on the Stoke Mandeville site was originally established in the 1830s as a Cholera hospital – a very long time before the NHS came into being.
- Wycombe Hospital was built over several phases from 1966.
- 60% of the buildings owned by the Trust are more than 30 years old.
- Our Trust faces the ninth highest repairs backlog costs of all healthcare trusts in England.
Earlier this year we applied for but were disappointed to not be selected to receive much needed funding to redevelop our buildings via the Hospitals Infrastructure Programme.
We will of course continue to make sure that all our services, in whatever building they may be based, can continue safely and effectively for our patients while we work towards refurbishing current facilities or replacing them with brand new buildings, as and when smaller amounts of funding become available.
