At the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust, our vision is "Working together to provide outstanding care for our community".
Central to achieving this vision is working in partnership with patients, colleagues across health and social care and other organisations who share the same values, to support people in our community. It is a challenging time to be working in the NHS but the dedication of our staff means we are in a strong position.
Services at the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust have recently been rated as "Good" by the Care Quality Commission.
We are one of the largest hospital foundation trusts in the country, and currently touch the lives of half a million patients in the west of Berskhire every year by providing high quality acute medical and surgical services for our local communities. If you would like to join our team we would love to hear from you - we are always looking for talented staff with a commitment to providing the best patient care.
Our Trust Values are Compassionate, Aspirational, Resourceful and Excellent (CARE). You can find out what they mean to us here.
