The George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust is a single site hospital on the outskirts of Nuneaton, Warwickshire. They provide a range of traditional district general hospital health services including medical, surgical and maternity care. However, the hospital’s management and clinical teams are committed to delivering the Department of Health’s vision to provide care closer to people’s homes and are currently developing an exciting strategy for the future of the hospital and the way it provides care to local people.
They serve a population of approximately 250,000 from the surrounding areas of Nuneaton and Bedworth, North Warwickshire, South West Leicestershire and Northern Coventry and work closely with other hospitals for services like cancer, pathology and coronary heart disease, amongst others. The hospital also provides some services such as physiotherapy and occupational therapy in the community.
In recognition of the hospital’s teaching, the Trust secured external funding for a state-of-the-art £5.5m Training and Education Centre which opened in October 2006.
The George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust is determined to improve the quality, accessibility and effectiveness of care, and meet the growing expectations of our patients and public.
The hospital is named after the author George Eliot (born Mary Ann Evans) who was born and lived locally for many years. Many of the wards and departments are named after characters and places in her books.
