Description

Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust has a track record of delivery and ambitious transformational plans to ensure the continued and longer term provision of outstanding compassionate care for our patients and colleagues.  We are:

  • consistently ranked one of the best (top 10) performing Trusts in England with an overall CQC rating of “Good”;
  • allocated £197m capital funding to invest at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary (HRI) and Calderdale Royal Hospital (CRH). This will enable the reconfiguration of our services across the two sites. Construction is underway and will complete by 2025.  This will support the longer-term resilience of acute and emergency service provision, improve the quality and safety of patient care, and provide an excellent environment for our patients and colleagues;
  • one of the most digitally advanced Trusts in England - investment in digital technology has transformed access to our services, improved quality and outcomes of care, and supported people in managing their health; 
  • nationally recognised for our commitment to reducing health inequalities in our local communities and for our continued focus on tackling the underlying issues;
  • recognised both nationally and internationally for the work being undertaken by our research and innovation team.

  • Implementing service reconfiguration across CRH and HRI
  • Digitally transforming the way we work and deliver care
  • Reducing Health Inequalities
  • Embedding learning and recovery from the Covid-19 Pandemic
  • Supporting Workforce Wellbeing
  • Reducing the Trust’s carbon footprint
  • Ensuring the effective and efficient use of resources
