More freedom to work for our patients
Royal Brompton & Harefield was authorised as a foundation trust on 1 June 2009.
Being a foundation trust has many advantages. We are:
directly accountable to our patients, staff and local community, which gives us more freedom and reduce ‘red tape’.
able to make our own decisions about the way we use our funds and the future of the services we offer.
able to benefit from new financial freedoms to raise and borrow funds from the public and private sectors to invest in new or existing services - this in turn means we can get better facilities more quickly.
Being a foundation trust will help us achieve our goals faster.
