Our Area

One of the great benefits of coming to work for our Trust is the opportunity to live in York, North Yorkshire or the North East Yorkshire Coast.

York is internationally renowned for its beauty and heritage. Its city centre, made famous by the iconic Minster and Shambles, is a bustling and vibrant hub for a range of activities; whether you're interested in relaxing in one of its huge number of bars, pubs and cafes, visiting one of its numerous museums or tourist attractions or enjoying a little retail therapy in its many and varied shops. Ideally placed on the East Coast Main Line for rail journeys to London, Scotland, or cross-country, York also has excellent road links which ensure easy access to the wonderful North Yorkshire countryside.

Scarborough is a vibrant seaside resort on the East Coast of Yorkshire set in beautiful countryside. The local industries include agriculture, fishing and tourism. Scarborough is one of the top ten tourist destinations in England, attracting more than one million visitors during the summer months.

In keeping with Scarborough being a major tourist attraction there are many indoor and outdoor entertainment venues. Outdoor sporting facilities in and around Scarborough are excellent. The North Yorkshire Moors National Park on Scarborough’s doorstep provides a place to get away from the crowds with walking and purpose built cycle tracks. The coast line of Yorkshire offers probably the best surfing, windsurfing, yachting, dinghy sailing and scenery on the east coast. There are a wide range of golfing opportunities including a championship course at Ganton. Those interested in fishing are also well catered for with boat, shore, fly, course and even salmon/sea trout on two rivers.

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.

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.
