The University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust is a hugely ambitious Trust. We want all our patients, staff, and partners to reach their potential, and we're fiercely proud of our hospitals (Royal Stoke University Hospital and County Hospital at Stafford) and our people. With an annual turnover of c£840m and over 11,000 dedicated staff we are one of the country’s largest University Trusts and provide a wide range of acute and specialist healthcare services to our local populations in Staffordshire, South Cheshire and Shropshire as well as being a Major Trauma Centre for a wider population of 3 million people.

Over the last few years, we have achieved significant improvements in the quality and efficiency of our services and we continue to deliver an ambitious programme of work aligned with our ‘Vision2025’ to be a world-class centre of achievement, where patients receive the highest standards of care and the best people come to learn, work and research.  Our services represent more than half of the Staffordshire health and social care economy and we are working collaboratively through ‘Together We’re Better’ with our partners and our public to integrate services, deliver more of these closer to home and create a sustainable model for the future.
