It is a description of the information about our Trust which we make publicly available. We shall review the Scheme at regular intervals and monitor how it is operating.

It is important to us that this Scheme meets your needs and we have designed it to be a route map so that you can find information about University Hospitals Bristol  NHS Foundation Trust easily.
