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.

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.
