Merged and acquired trusts will continue to be displayed as separate individual trusts in the Model Hospital until they submit:
- combined NHS reference costs and
- combined annual financial returns
The Model Hospital uses many different sources of data, so we cannot immediately combine data for the previous individual trusts, either for the current year or past years.
Recent mergers and acquisitions
- North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust
- Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust
- Essex Partnership University NHS Trust
|New trust||Previous trusts|
|University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust||Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust|
|East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust||Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust and Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust|
|Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust||South Staffordshire & Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Staffordshire & Stoke On Trent Partnership NHS Trust|

|Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust||Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust and Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust|
|South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust||City Hospitals Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust and South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust|
Where more recent data are available for these trusts, for example length of stay data based on Hospital Episode Statistics (HES), the same data will appear for both predecessor trusts, representing data at the new combined provider. This is to avoid too much switching between different providers in order to get a complete picture of the available data.
