Alice Hunter, Matron

‘I moved to York from London, I really enjoy the calm, friendly city away from the hustle and bustle of London life. York Teaching Hospital although smaller in comparison to some other hospitals has a great community feel where staff are friendly and know one another’ 

Tracy Means, Deputy Head of Nursing

‘I moved to York Teaching Hospital to gain promotion, I have found everyone to be so welcoming and supportive. It can be very busy both in the hospital and the community environment, but everyone wants to provide exceptional care and so go above and beyond in order to do this, and always with a smile on their face.’


Months after being named as the best place to live in the UK by the Sunday Times, a new poll completed in August 2018 revealed York is the country's favourite city; it's rich in culture and heritage. The historic city is renowned for its beautiful architecture. You will never be short of something to do in this vibrant modern city, with a huge range of restaurants and bars, with a colourful and varied nightlife which offers something for all ages. At 105 square miles, this compact city is half the size as Leeds. York is less than 2 hours by train from London and two and a half from Edinburgh. It's the UK’s first “Gigabit City”,offering broadband speeds of up to 1Gbps (one gigabit, or 1,000 megabits, per second). There’s free citywide superfast Wi-Fi

York continues to grow its facilities for the public including the York Community Stadium which has the one of the largest IMAX cinemas in the UK and provides a unique combination of sporting, health and educational facilities.North Yorkshire is also consistently found to be the safest area in England, with the lowest crime rate.  For all York’s cutting-edge cool, it’s still regularly voted one of the friendliest cities in the UK.

Information and updates about our services can be found on this website here.

As of Wednesday 21 October, after reviewing the guidance for visiting as set out by NHSE, the Trust has taken the difficult decision to suspend visiting to all of our sites, with immediate effect.  We have taken this decision to limit the spread of Covid-19, and to protect vulnerable patients and ensure staff safety.  As soon as it possible to safely relax the visiting restrictions we will do so

From Monday 15 June 2020, visitors and outpatients coming into our hospitals will be asked to wear a face covering at all times, to help us reduce the spread of Covid-19.  A face covering can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head.  It should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.  For more information click here
