Acute Trust

The organisational and managerial infrastructure of hospitals in the UK. Acute trusts decide how hospitals will develop, so that services improve, and are charged with ensuring that hospitals provide high quality healthcare and spend their money efficiently. Acute trusts employ most of the NHS workforce, including health professionals—e.g., doctors, nurses, pharmacists, midwives and health visitors; allied health workers—e.g., physiotherapists, radiographers, podiatrists, speech and language therapists, counsellors, occupational therapists, psychologists and healthcare scientists; and non-medical support staff—e.g., receptionists, porters, cleaners, IT specialists, managers, engineers, caterers and domestic and security staff.
