Services closer to home
The majority of our services are delivered in patients’ homes or at locations close to where they live. Such as:
- health centres
- GP practices
- community centres
- and schools.
As a provider of both mainstream and specialist care, our role is to focus on providing cost effective NHS care.
We do this by keeping people out of hospital and supporting vulnerable people throughout their lives.
As a dedicated provider of community services, our strategy is to bring more care closer to home.
This means providing a wider range of services in community settings and to keep people healthier for longer by developing more specialist services to support people to live independently at home.
We will improve health, health equity, wellbeing and prosperity across local communities by providing person centred care in collaboration with our partners.
Read about our Bridgewater PEOPLE values.
We achieved Foundation Trust status in 2014 and are always looking to transform the provision of healthcare for our communities.
We will involve patients and local people in our decisions about the services we provide and where they are delivered.
Anti-Racism Statement and Commitment
Bridgewater is committed to improving race equality for our staff and our communities, and to being actively anti-racist.
We are committed to improving awareness and understanding, from an individual to a Trust level, of the ways in which many of us have benefitted from privilege and systemic racial discrimination throughout our lives.
We will as a Trust demonstrate honesty and transparency; we will admit where we have gaps in knowledge, understanding, data, representation; we will be open and honest about where we believe we can do better; and we will actively facilitate and listen to the voices of our diverse workforce and communities, recognising that Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups are not a collective whole any more than ‘White British’ is a group with identical views, needs, aspirations and inequalities.
We will work in true partnership with our staff networks and with our wider communities to develop and deliver real and sustainable plans that address racism, discrimination, and inequality.
