Quick Reference

A type of self-governing hospital, often referred to as a foundation hospital, created under the Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Act 2003. Although such hospitals remain part of the National Health Service, they are not subject to central government control but have freedom to decide locally how to meet their obligations and are accountable to local people (factors that distinguish them from NHS Trusts).
