The North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust is currently the newest acute hospital trust in England. Formed on 1 April 2017, the trust runs three busy hospitals – Peterborough City Hospital, Hinchingbrooke Hospital and Stamford and Rutland Hospital. Together they serve approximately 700,000 residents living in Cambridgeshire, South Lincolnshire and the neighbouring counties.
Our hospital sites offer a wide variety of acute services to a growing population. All three sites deliver inpatient and outpatient services.
Previously the hospitals were run by two separate trusts – Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Hinchingbrooke HealthCare NHS Trust. By combining the two trusts, we have been able to strengthen the clinical and financial sustainability of our hospitals which will help retain services that were previously deemed fragile and ensure patients can continue to be able to access treatments closer to home. In addition, the merger has increased the Trust’s offering to prospective employees – with greater opportunities to work in larger teams and across the diversity of its sites in order to gain wider experience in their field
The new trust employs 6,000 staff and is supported by an army of 450 volunteers who dedicate some of their free time to support hospital services mainly in patient-facing roles.
Our Trust's strategic goal is Working together to be the best at providing outstanding care for local communities - something which all our staff will be focussed upon as our new Trust takes shape over the coming weeks and months.
