About the Staff Lottery

All employees are invited to participate in the monthly Staff Lottery and have the opportunity to win cash prizes and other fantastic prizes.

You can buy from 1 to 10 numbers per month with each number costing £2. Unlike other lotteries you don’t have to remember to buy a ticket for each draw, once you have filled out the application form we will deduct the money from your salary and enter your number in the monthly draw for a chance to win cash prizes and other fantastic prizes. You will receive confirmation of your entry and your unique number(s). If you are part of the Trust's weekly paid bank staff you will be able to set this up via standing order.

Many services have received lottery funds including therapies such as reflexology, podiatry, gym memberships and Staff Benefits Grants.

You can complete a Staff Lottery application form here and in the leaflet dispensers outside the  Staff Shop York and Staff Shop Scarborough or the electronic version is available under Lottery Application Form button.

Bank Staff

Employee's on a bank contract, will need to set up a standing order with their bank to pay for their numbers. The standing order is to be made payable to: 'YORK TEACH HOSP NHS FT' Sort Code 60-70-80 Account Number 10007652. Each number is £2 per month. Please set up standing orders to be paid on the 25th of the month and use reference 'SL/payroll number/name'.

Retiring & Returning

If you are 'Retiring & Returning' your staff assignment number will be cancelled and you will receive a new one when you return to work. This means that your Staff Lottery numbers will also be cancelled, so when you return, please complete a new application form.

Each month £4,955 is given away in cash prizes. Up to 50% of the income from the lottery is paid in prizes. The other 50% is used to enhance the work/life balance for staff.

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.

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.
