The new organisation that will be formed when Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust and Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation merge has been named.

The trust, which launches on April 1, will be called the North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust after scooping the majority of over 4,500 public votes.

The winning name received 1,587 votes, with Peterborough, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust coming second with 1,202.

Stephen Graves, chief executive of the new trust said: “I would like to thank the members of the public and the staff at both our Trusts for taking part in this important decision. In total 4,570 votes were cast in the poll which closed on December 28.

“We will now work with NHS Identity to create the new Trust logo which will be used on our corporate branding, including signage, patient letters and our website from April 1.”
