Building our future, together

This website is jointly developed by Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) and Sherwood Forest NHS Foundation Trust (SFH).

It is intended to provide the latest information to patients, partners, members and staff about the proposed merger of SFH and NUH.

It includes Frequently Asked Questions, latest news, events and other useful resources, which we will add to over time.

Keeping patients, partners, the local community and staff updated (and where possible involved in the creation of the new organisation), is one of our priorities as we prepare for the proposed merger.

As this will be the first time an NHS Trust and Foundation Trust will combine to form an NHS Trust, some of the work required to create the enlarged organisation is taking longer than planned (including the legal aspects). The proposed merger is likely to happen in 2017.

We remain fully committed to merging SFH and NUH to form Nottinghamshire University Hospitals NHS Trust, knowing this is the right decision for patients, for staff and the Nottinghamshire health and social care system. The merger will enable the delivery of consistent standards of care to patients in Nottinghamshire and bring clinical and financial sustainability to our services over the longer-term.
