The RUH became a National Health Service Trust in 1992. It provides 687 beds and a comprehensive range of acute services including medicine and surgery, services for women and children, accident and emergency services, and diagnostic and clinical support services. The Trust employs around 4,800 staff, some of who also provide outpatient, diagnostic and some day case surgery services at local community hospitals in Bath & North East Somerset, Somerset and Wiltshire.
The RUH wants to become an NHS Foundation Trust from next April, which would give it greater freedom to set its own priorities. Members of the public can find out more via their website.
