York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals 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.

Our annual turnover is approaching £0.5bn. We manage eight hospital sites and have a workforce of around 10,000 staff working across our hospitals and in the community.

We are an 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, enabling us to shape healthcare to better suit our communities. We are accountable to the National Health Service through an elected and appointed Council of Governors.

Scarborough Hospital

Scarborough Hospital is the Trust’s second largest hospital. It has an Accident and Emergency department and provides acute medical and surgical services, including trauma and intensive care services to the population and visitors to the North East Yorkshire Coast.

Get involved

This is an ambitious, long-term proposal and a huge investment in the health of patients from Scarborough and the wider East Coast. We welcome your feedback and ideas as we develop our design. Please do let us know what you think. This is your hospital: your healthcare.
