First choice for Buckinghamshire and beyond
Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust provide a wide range of high quality acute and community services from three acute hospital sites in Amersham, Stoke Mandeville and Wycombe, five community hospitals at Thame, Marlow, Buckingham, Chalfonts and Gerrards Cross and Waterside, and a number of community sites across the county. Details of these can be found on they hospitals and community facilities page.
Specialist services include our regional dermatology, allergy and skin cancer centre, burns care and plastics sub-regional centre, cardiac services and the National Spinal Injuries Centre.
More than 6,000 staff serve residents across Buckinghamshire, Thame (Oxfordshire), Tring (Hertfordshire) and Leighton Buzzard (Bedfordshire) - a combined population of 500,000. It serves a much larger population, 1.5m for burns and plastic services and 14m for spinal injuries.
Where your needs always come first
What makes Buckinghamshire Healthcare different is their pledge to ensure that ‘your needs always come first’. This is embodied in their promises to provide you with clean and safe practice, clinics and hospitals, a caring and helpful attitude, respect for your time, good access to comfortable modern facilities, and of course the best clinical care from teams of skilled healthcare professionals.
Strong local partnerships
The Buckinghamshire Health Community is located within the boundaries of South Central Strategic Health Authority.
Buckinghamshire Primary Care Trust is Buckinghamshire Healthcare's lead commissioner, accounting for more than 60% of the Trust’s income. The two NHS organisations are co-terminus with the local authority, Buckinghamshire County Council, which facilitates comprehensive partnership arrangements and joint planning.
A good example of partnership working is the Local Safeguarding Childrens Board which is hosted by Bucks County Council. You can see their joint website here.
The website brings together information for children, young people and their families, as well as the professionals who work with them. It also provides an overview of the role and scope of the Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Board.
