The Trust has a history of high quality care, clinical excellence and innovation in medical research. The Trust has been awarded the title of ‘Hospital Trust of the Year’ in the Good Hospital Guide three times in five years and we are proud to be in the top 20% of NHS Trusts for patient satisfaction.
We strive to promote a culture of continuous quality improvement and encourage our staff to innovate and adopt ‘best practice’ in order to deliver the highest standard of care to our patients.
The Northern General Hospital is the home of the City’s Accident and Emergency department which is also now one of three Major Trauma Centres for the Yorkshire and Humber region. A number of specialist medical and surgical services are also located at the Northern General Hospital including cardiac, orthopaedics, burns, plastic surgery, spinal injuries and renal to name a few.
A state-of-the-art laboratories complex provides leading edge diagnostic services. The hospital also provides a wide range of specialist surgery such as orthopaedic, spinal cord, hand and kidney transplantation.

Sheffield Teaching Hospitals is home to the largest dental school in the region, a women’s hospital with a specialist neonatal intensive care unit and a world renowned Cancer hospital. The Trust has also recently integrated with the City’s NHS community services to support our work to provide care closer to home for patients and preventing admissions to hospital wherever possible.
We have a long tradition of clinical and scientific achievement, including the development of one of the UK’s first Academic Health Sciences Networks.
Through our partnerships with the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University, other health and social care providers and industry we remain at the forefront of advancements in clinical services, teaching and research.
We have around 15,000 employees, making us one of the biggest employers locally. We aim to reflect the diversity of local communities and are proud of our new and existing partnerships with local people, patients, neighbouring NHS organisations, local authority and charitable bodies.
We strive to recruit and retain the best staff: the dedication and skill of our employees are what make our hospitals and community services successful and we continue to keep the health and wellbeing of our staff as a priority. Our PROUD values (see opposite) were developed by our staff and our Let's talk initiaitive aims to encourage all staff to become involved in the development of high quality, efficient services and new ideas.
Our vision is to be recognised as the best provider of health, clinical research and education in the UK and a strong contributor to the aspiration of Sheffield to be a vibrant and healthy city. We have begun this journey with our staff, partners and patients and we will continue to explore every aspect of our business to ensure we are doing our very best to achieve our vision
