Fit for the Future is part of the One Gloucestershire vision, focussing on the medium and long term future of specialist hospital services at Cheltenham General Hospital and Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

We want to:

  • Improve health outcomes for you
  • Reduce waiting times and ensure fewer cancelled operations
  • Ensure patients receive the right care at the right time in the right place
  • Ensure there are always safe staffing levels, including senior doctors available 24/7
  • Support joint working between services to reduce the number of visits you have to make to hospital
  • Attract and keep the best staff in Gloucestershire.

To achieve these things and to make the most of developing staff skills, precious resources and advances in medicine and technology, we need to look at how we provide some of our specialist hospital services at Gloucestershire Royal and Cheltenham General and make best use of our hospital sites.

Watch our short video introducing Fit for the Future.
