This is an exciting time to join the Trust, as we develop our clinical strategy and plans for modernising our hospitals and health services (MOHHS) in the Hampshire Together programme. This programme, as part of the Government's Health Infrastructure Programme (HIP2), will see improved integration with primary care, community services and other acute providers, as well as investing over 500M in a new hospital and significant refurbishment into the Royal Hampshire County Hospital. This, in the context of closer working with all providers across the Hampshire Isle of Wight Integrated Care System gives us many opportunities to improve the care we provide.
