Access to good NHS services is vitally important to more than 1.5 million patients, carers and families across the Tees Valley, North Yorkshire and beyond who depend and rely on them.
It is the top priority of everyone who works at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust too.
We provide a large number of specialist services – delivering world-class cancer, cardiothoracic, spinal, cochlear implant, neurosciences, gynaecology vascular and urology care for patients across our region.
Our major trauma centre sees half of all trauma cases in the North East and Cumbria.
As an anchor tertiary provider we play an important role in ensuring that specialist care is available to patients across our region and that health inequalities are not exacerbated in our local communities.
More than 37 specialties
The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough provides more than 37 different specialties all on one site.
The majority of these specialist services deliver care to patients and service users across Teesside, North Yorkshire and beyond.
Construction of a new £5million diagnostic hub is underway at our Friarage Hospital in Northallerton which serves communities across the Dales, North Yorkshire and Teesside.
Together with our three primary care hospital wards and local community NHS teams, we provide care closer to home for patients from Hawes to East Cleveland and everywhere in between.
We are a clinically-led organisation and by enabling clinicians to come together to shape and deliver the care they want for their patients, we were rated by our colleagues in the 2020 NHS Staff Survey as the most improved trust in the country.
Our significant contribution to the COVID-19 research effort is a mark of our determination to remain at the forefront of clinical research as a driver of safe, quality care.
Alongside our commitment to research, our position as one of the country’s highest ranked medical training organisations, and as a Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer, characterises our commitment to our people and communities.
