Solent NHS Trust is the leading NHS organisation for the area. The Trust brings community healthcare services in the same organisation. This means that the Trust is responsible for most of local people’s health care – either by providing the services or buying them from other organisations.
The National Health Service (NHS) is a very large part of the public sector. There are over 600 Primary Care Trusts (PCTs); a full list can be found on the NHS website.
The strategic direction of the Trust is guided by the Department of Health and the principles set out in the NHS Plan. The Department of Health website can be found at the Department of Health website and has links to key national strategies that guide the NHS nationally.
