HR at the Start

Meika, Jenny and Nic are all employees within the Trust and see first-hand the ways in which charitable donations make such a difference to patient experience. They also love a challenge!

The team said "It was a brilliant day. The scenery was amazing and there was great camaraderie among the walkers. The support from the charity team was also fantastic and we really welcomed the moral support, snacks and drinks at the checkpoints! We felt a real sense of achievement both in completing the challenge and also raising over £650 for the charity."

The team say they would highly recommend walking the Yorkshire Three Peaks for York Teaching Hospital Charity and might be back next year to crack their 10 hour time!

Think you can take on the Great North Run challenge? Read Mark's story to inspire you!

Mark (right photo) decided to run the Great North Run in 2019 to raise money for the Butterfly Appeal after sadly losing his granddaughter just 3 minutes after she was born.

Mark said "After watching my daughter go through the pain of losing her baby Alice Sarah, and been able to spend precious moments with Alice in a room which most people won't even know is there, I decided I want to say thank you in a way that might help support other families who go through a similar experience."

Mark raised over £1,500 through sponsorship for his run!

Blood taking, York Hospital

Due to COVID-19, from Monday 6 April the Phlebotomy service at York Hospital outpatient department will be closed until further notice.

We will continue to offer a blood taking services for patients who have urgent bloods requests only, at the nearby Nuffield Hospital. The urgency will have been identified during your medical appointment. Please access the Nuffield Hospital via the main reception and from there you will be directed to Phlebotomy. Please take a seat and wait to be called.

Patients who have routine blood test for yearly check-ups should not attend. Instead, please contact your GP to request an appointment at the GP surgery for your bloods to be taken.

Maternity services

If you are due to have a baby, please visit our website for up to date information about maternity services at this time

Haematology and Oncology services

With effect from Monday 6 April there will be temporary changes to the Haematology and Oncology services at Scarborough and York Hospital.  These decision have been made on the grounds of patient safety in the current coronavirus pandemic.  Find out more here.

Visiting cancelled

Due to the increasing number of cases of coronavirus across the UK, York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has made the decision to cancel all visiting to all its hospital sites in order to ensure the safety of patients and staff.

There are three exemptions to the ruling which are for one parent of a sick child under 18, for the partner of a woman giving birth and end of life patients at the discretion of the ward sister.

We would ask people to respect this decision and to treat our staff, who will be enforcing the visiting restrictions, with courtesy and respect.  For more information visit our website.

Outpatient appointments

We know that NHS services will come under intense pressure as the coronavirus spreads, and as a Trust we need to redirect staff, free up staff for refresher training and carry out any works as necessary, so we are able to maximise capacity for patients for when the number of infections peak.  We also need to reduce the number of people coming into our hospitals to protect our patients, as well as keeping our staff safe, well and able to come into work.

To do this, with effect from Tuesday 24 March 2020, along with other trusts in the Humber Coast and Vale partnerships, we have made the collective decision to suspend all non-urgent routine outpatient appointments for at least three months.  Urgent and emergency cases and cancer appointments will be carrying on as normal.

These are unprecedented times and we thank you for your understanding.  We know many people waiting for treatment will be disappointed or worried but please not contact the hospital as we will be contacting everyone directly affected in the coming days and weeks.

If you do not receive a letter or a phone call from the hospital, please turn up for your scheduled appointment as normal unless you have symptoms of coronavirus, a cold, flu or norovirus in which case you should contact us to cancel your appointment by clicking here.
