A New Kind of Trust

University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust was created in November 2014 following the integration of Stafford Hospital with the University Hospital of North Staffordshire, signalling a time of major, positive change in health services for the people of Staffordshire.

Never before have two such significant trusts come together to form one organisation and with investment of more than £250m the single new NHS Trust in the North Midlands will see local hospital services and facilities transformed, providing an opportunity for a bright and stable future.

Serving around three million people across Staffordshire and North Wales, UHNM is one of the largest hospital trusts in the country. Our 11,700 strong workforce provide emergency treatment, planned operations and medical care from the Royal Stoke University Hospital and the County Hospital at Stafford.

The Trust also provides specialised services for three million people in a wider area, including neighbouring counties and North Wales. Our specialised services include cancer diagnosis and treatment, cardiothoracic surgery, neurosurgery, renal and dialysis services, neonatal intensive care, paediatric intensive care, trauma, respiratory conditions, spinal surgery, upper gastro-intestinal surgery, complex orthopaedic surgery, laparoscopic surgery and the management of liver conditions.
