At the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust, our vision is
We have a rich history of providing healthcare to the people of Reading, west Berkshire and south Oxfordshire. Our legacy is one of innovation and change, always looking ahead to the challenges of the future, and the health and wellbeing of the people we serve.
To make our vision a reality, we will be working in partnership with our staff, patients and visitors, our health and social care colleagues, and with other local organisations across the community. We will look to innovate, make the best use of new technologies and learn from our failures and our successes so that we are better today than yesterday.
It is a challenging time to be working in the NHS but the dedication of our staff means that we are in a strong position to deliver. Services at the Royal Berkshire Hospital have been rated as ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission and as a Trust we achieved a ‘good’ rating. We offer some of the shortest waiting times in the country and the outcomes we achieve are amongst the highest for a hospital of our type.
We are confident that we can build on these successes by harnessing the capabilities of our staff, driven by our values which underpin our learning culture. We work hard to listen and engage with our staff about the issues that matter to them and invest in them so they can develop their skills and build fruitful and rewarding careers.
Our strategy 'Vision 2025' sets 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 it inspires you and gives you confidence, that the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust has the vision, the determination, and the people it takes to create an even better future for our patients.
