Our mission, vision and values

University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBW) was formed on 1 April 2020 following the merger of University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust and Weston Area Health NHS Trust.

Our mission is to improve the health of the people we serve by delivering exceptional care, teaching and research every day.

Our vision for 2025 is to:

  • grow our specialist hospital services and our position as a leading provider in south west England and beyond
  • work more closely with our health and care partners  to provide more joined up local healthcare services and support the improvement of the health and wellbeing of our communities 
  • become a beacon for outstanding education and research and our culture of innovation.
