Scarborough Hospital

In 1936 Scarborough Hospital was built at a cost of £135,000. It officially opened its doors on Sunday 23 October by H.R.H the Duke of Kent.

In 1948 the NHS was formed. The Leeds Regional Hospital Board, was also established which together with the Scarborough, Bridlington, Malton and Whitby Group managed Scarborough Hospital alongside 13 other local hospitals.

Long term development of local healthcare services were made at national level and in 1986 this came to fruition as a new extension to Scarborough Hospital was approved, opening in 1988.

Scarborough and North East Yorkshire Healthcare NHS Trust was established in April 1992.

Recent developments include a new Women’s Unit and Midwifery-Led Unit, new Radiology Department, Gastroenterology Department, refurbishment of A&E and Maple Ward a new surgical ward.

In July 2012, Scarborough Hospital and Scarborough and North East Yorkshire Healthcare NHS Trust became part of York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Royal College of Nursing members at our Trust are taking part in strike action Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 February from 7.00am to 8.00pm. This will impact services at our hospitals.

If you are due to attend an appointment and we haven't already contacted you, please come as planned.

On days where there is strike action, patients should only call 999 if it is a medical or mental health emergency (when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk).
