The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the most successful teaching NHS Trusts in the country. We have one of the highest number of specialist services of hospitals in the UK. With around 15,000 staff, the Newcastle Hospitals is one of the region’s major employers. We have a long-standing reputation for high quality clinical care with our staff’s commitment to excellence reflected in our consistent performance at the highest level. We are committed to being an “employer of choice” offering our staff superb benefits, looking after their wellbeing, and providing access to high-quality education, training, career progression and support which enables them to provide “Healthcare at its best with people at our heart”.

The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a world class health care provider, and one of the most successful teaching NHS trusts in the country. A tertiary centre, it offers the second highest number of specialist services than any other group of hospitals in the UK, with more than 1.72 million patient contacts each year, delivering innovative, high quality services locally, regionally, nationally and internationally and has been twice rated ‘Outstanding’ by the CQC.

We are the largest Trust in the country - and one of only five NHS organisations - to receive this accolade twice, which reaffirms our position as one of the UK’s top hospital trusts.

We are committed to promoting equality and diversity and recognise the benefit in providing an inclusive environment. We value and respect the diversity of our employees and aim to recruit a workforce which reflects the communities we serve, and is equipped to deliver the best service to our patients. We welcome all applications irrespective of people’s race, disability, gender, sexual orientation, religion or belief, age, gender identity, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity and in particular those from under represented groups.
