Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Hospital Foundation Trust aims to be a hospital of choice for patients and GPs and an employer of choice. Our vision is:
“To provide high-quality patient-centred care for our local population and those using our specialist services, delivered by a modern workforce in a range of settings along integrated pathways of care.”
We want our staff to live our ‘proud’ values and be :
- Putting patients first
- Responsive to, and supportive of, patients and staff
- Open, welcoming and honest
- Unfailingly kind, treating everyone with respect, compassion and dignity
- Determined to develop our skills and continuously improve the quality of care
Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust is a major teaching hospital which provides not only general acute hospital services for our local community – for example, A&E, surgery, medicine, maternity and children’s services – but also a range of nationally and internationally renowned specialist services to patients from a much wider area.
The Trust runs two main hospitals:
- Chelsea and Westminster Hospital
- West Middlesex University Hospital
We have nearly 6,000 members of staff that care for nearly one million people locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. Both hospitals provide full clinical services, including full maternity, emergency and children’s, in addition to a range of community-based services across London, such as award-winning sexual health and HIV clinics.
Our Trust has been rated by the Care Quality Commission as ‘Good’ in all five of the main domains of safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led, giving an us overall rating of ‘Good’. We are one of the first trusts to receive ‘Good’ across the board under the new CQC inspection framework. Both hospitals within our Trust—Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital—were rated as ‘Good’ overall.
Our Trust was awarded an ‘Outstanding’ rating for ‘use of resources’ by an NHS Improvement inspection which was completed during the same period as the CQC assessment.
