More about Foundation Trusts
Foundation Trusts are NHS organisations which are more accountable to local people and have greater financial freedoms to invest in local services.
They remain firmly part of the NHS and are subject to its standards, performance ratings and systems of inspection.
Their primary purpose is to provide care to NHS patients.
Foundation Trusts have unique governance arrangements which include members (public, patients and staff) and governors (elected by members or nominated by partner organisations).
