St George’s Achieves Foundation Trust Status

February 2 2015
After 6 years St George's has achieved foundation trust status!


We are a Foundation Trust - if you hadn’t heard!

Six years of hard work culminated this Monday with the announcement by Monitor that we achieved foundation trust status.

Miles Scott, chief executive, said: “My sincere congratulations and thanks for the part you’ve played in making this positive and significant change for the trust and for our patients.”

The official name change will happen next week once the council of governors have approved the proposed new title – St George’s University Hospitals NHS Trust.
