In 2006 UHSM became a Foundation Trust and although we remain part of the NHS we now manage the services we provide to our local community. In return we give our staff, patients and the communities we serve the opportunity to have a say in how the hospital is run and services developed. Becoming a member of the Trust allows you to be involved in our future and can make a vital contribution to our hospital.
