South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, like many NHS trusts across the country, has some services provided by an external company called Carillion plc.
Today, it has been announced that Carillion plc has gone into liquidation due to considerable financial difficulties.
We want to reassure our patients and staff that these services on The James Cook University Hospital site remain open as normal.
We have planned extensively and will be working hard to minimise any disruption.
Patients should turn up for appointments as planned.
