Who we are and what we do

Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is part of the NHS and is one of the largest teaching hospital trusts in the United Kingdom. The Trust consists of the Northern General Hospital, The Royal Hallamshire Hospital, The Jessop Wing Women’s Hospital, Charles Clifford Dental Hospital, and Weston Park Hospital.

Originally formed in 2001 as the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust it achieved Foundation Trust status on 1st July 2004. The Trust is regulated by Monitor the Independent Regulator of NHS Foundation Trusts.

The Trust provides acute, elective and specialist services across a wide range of clinical departments and specialities, serving the City of Sheffield – and further afield.

Our work as a Trust is based upon the strategic direction established with the Department of Health. We work closely with our partner organisations, including other acute hospital trusts, Primary Care Trusts especially the Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group (known as NHS Sheffield), Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust and Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust.

Some of our services are provided jointly with these partner organisations. The Trust also has close links with the University of Sheffield and the Sheffield Hallam University. The University of Sheffield Medical School is located at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital and medical student training takes place within all of the hospitals. Nurse training is also provided by the University of Sheffield and in the Trust’s hospitals. Both Universities provide further specialist training and support to all types of health professionals
