The part of the NHS that manages Stoke Mandeville, Amersham and Wycombe hospitals is changing its name.

The move is a legal requirement after Buckinghamshire Hospitals NHS Trust (who manage hospitals) merged with Community Health Buckinghamshire (who managed 1500 staff in community health teams, therapy teams, community nurses, community hospitals).

The merged organisation will be known as Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust..

QUICK FACTS

  • The new organisation can't be called i.e. DAVE, as the name must reflect what services it offers!
  • Officials say the name must legally change after the merger because the organisation now has a new constitution
  • We’re told the change shouldn't cost a large amount of money (although exact figures haven't been disclosed) as there isn't large amounts of letterheads in storage "or stacks of printed paper that need throwing out" says Sheryl Pope, Director of Strategy and System Reform.
  • The new organisation is separate to NHS Buckinghamshire (which pays for services and used to be Bucks Primary Care Trust)
  • There will be new signs going up to reflect the new name!
  • Current NHS vans that carry the old logo won't change in the short term
  • The name change suggests that there is no plan to merge the 2 main separate parts of Buckinghamshire NHS (i.e. NHS Bucks and now Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust).

Sheryl PopeAnne Eden, Chief Executive of the new Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust told Mix96 “We felt it was important to change our name to reflect the wide range of services we now offer patients from our hospitals and also in community settings and in people’s own homes. In addition, discussions took place with staff across the organisation alongside patient representatives to evolve our five patient promises to reflect our extended range of services which underpin everything that we do"
