About York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust provides a comprehensive range of acute hospital and specialist healthcare services for approximately 800,000 people living in and around York, North Yorkshire, North East Yorkshire and Ryedale - an area covering 3,400 square miles.

In April 2011 we took over the management of community-based services in Selby, York, Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale and in July 2012 acquired Scarborough and North East Yorkshire Healthcare NHS Trust, bringing Scarborough and Bridlington Hospitals into the organisation.

Our annual turnover is over £400million.  We manage eight hospital sites, 1,100 beds (including day case beds) and have a workforce of over 8,500 staff working across our hospitals and in the community.

Working in partnership

The National Health Service (NHS) is one of the largest public sector organisations in the world. It was set up in 1948 to provide healthcare for all British Citizens based on need and not the ability to pay. 

This link will direct you to the NHS Choices website which provides an overview of the NHS Organisational Structure in England, which underwent a major transformation in 2013. 

York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust covers one of the biggest geographical areas in the country. We are working with our local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and local authorities to ensure our services are developed to continue to meet the needs of our patients. 

Our main partners include:


Foundation Trust

We are a NHS Foundation Trust.  Foundation Trusts operate independently of the Department of Health, but remain part of the National Health Service. This gives us greater freedom and more formal links with patients and staff. We are accountable to them through an elected and appointed Council of Governors.
