South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust runs The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough and the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton, providing district general hospital services for the local population.
We also offer a range of specialist regional services to 1.5million people in the Tees Valley and parts of Durham, North Yorkshire and Cumbria, with a particular expertise in heart disease, neurosciences, children’s services, renal medicine, cancer services and spinal injuries and are the major trauma centre for the southern part of the northern region.
In addition, we provide community services from Hambleton, Richmondshire, Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland, including services at:
• Redcar Primary Care Hospital
• Guisborough Primary Care Hospital
• East Cleveland Primary Care Hospital in Brotton
• Friary Community Hospital in Richmond
The organisation is built on the dedication and hard work of our staff and we are very proud of our 9,000 workforce. We are continuing to build links with the Universities of Teesside, Durham and Newcastle and have a purpose-built academic centre with medical students and nursing and midwifery students doing their clinical placements on site. We are also a leading partner in the academic health science network (AHSN) for the North East and North Cumbria, which aims to recognise the brilliant ideas originating from the region’s health service, turning them into treatments, accessible technologies and medicines, and the Clinical Research Network North East and North Cumbria. Our continued links with the Ministry of Defence Hospital Unit (MDHU) at the Friarage also go from strength to strength with both organisations benefiting from close working arrangements; military staff having the opportunity to develop their clinical skills for use on operations while the trust benefits from the input of staff who have gained experience on duty.
