Do you want to work for an organisation that empowers its clinicians to make the decisions around how resources are allocated and care is delivered?
Do you want to work in an NHS organisation that has been ranked in the top two most improved hospital trusts in the country for two out of the last three years in the national NHS Staff Survey?
Do you want to live in an area that has great schools, cost effective living, stunning countryside and a beautiful coastline?
If you do, you have come to the right place. It’s the South Tees Way.
Welcome to the South Tees way
Getting good NHS services is the most important thing to more than 1.5 million patients, carers and families in the Tees Valley, North Yorkshire and beyond who depend and rely on them. It is the most overriding thing to everyone who works at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust too.
This is important – not just for our local communities in Teesside and North Yorkshire but for patients across the north east and beyond who rely on us as a specialist centre and regional major trauma centre.
We are an anchor tertiary provider – delivering world-class cancer, cardiothoracic, spinal, cochlear implant, neurosciences, gynaecology and urology care for patients across the region – and one of only three hospital trusts in the UK operating three robotic surgical systems. Our major trauma centre sees half of all trauma cases in the North East and Cumbria.
Our role as an anchor tertiary provider is also crucial in ensuring that specialist care is available to patients across our region and that health inequalities are not exacerbated in our local patient populations.
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.
This clinically-led approach has been at the heart of our response to COVID-19 and the overriding goal set by our experienced clinicians to help keep colleagues, patients and service users safe.
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 committed apprenticeship employer, characterises our commitment to our people and communities.
