List of NHS trusts

This is a list of current and former NHS trusts established in England. It includes acute hospital trusts, ambulance trusts, mental health trusts, and the unique Isle of Wight NHS Trust. As of April 2020 there are altogether 217 trusts, and they employ around 800,000 of the NHS's 1.2 million staff.[1]

Community health trusts present particular difficulties. Like all the trusts, they were originally established under the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990. They have been frequently merged, split and reorganised, sometimes combined with hospital trusts or mental health trusts. After 2001, most of them were subsumed into primary care trusts, and under the Transforming Community Services programme they were then re-established in various organisational forms, not always within the NHS. A further wave of community trusts were established between 2010 and 2013 when PCTs were abolished, sometimes reusing a previous name.

All trusts are supervised by NHS Improvement, which replaced Monitor and the NHS Trust Development Authority in April 2016.

About the list[edit]

Many trusts have dissolved or have changed their name, and each is listed separately, under each significant name. If a trust has continued with only a slight name change, it is only listed once, with the latest name.

Dates of mergers and dissolutions are generally the date of legislation; the operational date may be different.

There is a separate list of primary care trusts in England (abolished in 2013) which did not have the same legal status.
