Sheffield Teaching Hospitals is one of the UK’s largest NHS Foundation Trusts and one of the largest and busiest teaching hospitals. We have over 15000 staff caring for over a million patients each year at our five hospitals and in the local community:
- The Royal Hallamshire Hospital
- The Northern General Hospital
- Charles Clifford Dental Hospital
- Weston Park Cancer Hospital
- Jessop Wing Maternity Hospital
We offer a full range of local hospital services for people in Sheffield as well as specialist services to patients from further afield. The Trust is recognised internationally for its work in neurosciences, spinal injuries, cancer, transplantation, neurosciences and orthopaedics. We are one of only a handful of hospital Trusts to have been awarded the highest rating of 'excellent' for both the quality of our services and our financial management, three years running. We are proud to be one of the top 20% of NHS Trusts for patient satisfaction.
We also play a key role in the training and education of medical, nursing and dental students with our academic partners, including the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam.
The integration of community health services into the Trust in April 2011 improved coordination and communication between hospital, community, mental heath and social care services, resulting in patients experiencing more responsive and seamless care. Community health services, which includes services such as nursing, health visiting and physiotherapy, transferred to be managed by the three local foundation trusts - Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Sheffield Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust in 2011.
The Trust has been awarded the title of ‘Hospital Trust of the Year’ in the Good Hospital Guide three times in five years and is a recognised leader in medical research for bone, cardiac, neurosciences and long term conditions such as diabetes and lung disease.
As a NHS Foundation Trust we have more freedom to develop our services for the benefit of patients and give people a much greater say in how we do this.
