About Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust
Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust (HCT) is the principal provider of community-based healthcare services to the 1.2 million population of Hertfordshire. The Trust is rated as 'Good' by the Care Quality Commission.
We have over 2,000 staff and every day we deliver a wide range of high quality health services to people in their homes, in local clinics, in schools and in our community hospitals located across the county. We also provide the healthcare services at HMP The Mount in Bovingdon. We support people at every stage of their lives, from health visiting and school nursing services for children and young people to community nursing, rehabilitation and palliative care. In 2018/19 we had nearly 2 million patient contacts and a budget of £146 million.
We work in partnership with colleagues across NHS, social care, education, charities and local government helping people to maintain their independence for as long as possible and making sure people get the right care in the right place at the right time.
Community health services are at the forefront of NHS care and support. Our mission is to maintain and improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Hertfordshire
