Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was formed in April 2002 and became a Foundation Trust in July 2004. It is one of the largest hospital trusts in the country and provides high quality acute elective and specialist care for a population of more than 850,000 people. A successful Trust with a strong track record of achievement, we are situated mainly on the two larger operational sites, Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and Cheltenham General Hospital, providing acute services to Gloucestershire. The Microbiology laboratory is centralised in Gloucester Royal Hospital and serves all of Gloucestershire and parts of adjacent counties, processing approximately 400,000 specimens per year.
