Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust is beginning a major modernisation of its services and its buildings. The objective is to develop and deliver outstanding NHS services that are fit for the future, and to play a greater part in the growth and development of our local economy.

Today the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust is rated GOOD by the Care Quality Commission. It is well-led, caring, safe and responsive and the outpatient and diagnostic imaging services are rated OUTSTANDING.

Yet despite these excellent ratings, our hospital buildings have a significant backlog of maintenance problems and severely restricted space. Many of our buildings are no longer completely fit for purpose. The hospital layout is far from perfect with wards and diagnostic areas that are distant from each other meaning that privacy can be compromised as patients are moved around the hospital.

Therefore, due to the current requirements, we are on hand to increase the through-flow / Entrance to the A&E area. We are on-site to execute the groundworks as swiftly as possible with the principle contractor Willmott Dixon.
