Gloucestershire Care Services NHS Trust has today published its first annual report and quality account.

The Trust runs seven community hospitals and a range of other services from community nursing and health visiting to physiotherapy and adult social care.

It began operating as a standalone NHS provider on April 1, 2013, meaning this is the first set of accounts and overview of the quality of care being provided.

Chair Ingrid Barker said: “These reports are a landmark step for the Trust, which show how we have been delivering high-quality services to care for the people of Gloucestershire over the past year. They also outline our priorities for the coming months, which include improving the experiences of service users, carers and families and ensuring active two-way engagement with them.”

Chief Executive Paul Jennings added: “The reports show the Trust is in a strong financial position and meeting our goals of providing high quality care across the county. Our aim now is to build on this achievement while working towards becoming a Foundation Trust.”
