Overview

Sir Leonard R Fenwick CBE, Chief Executive

Welcome to The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, one of the largest NHS trusts in the UK.

We offer a wider range of specialist services than any other group of hospitals outside London.

You can find out about us on our website.

You can also see our full range of services and treatments, but some of our main services include:

We’re much more than a provider of local care. We’re recognised nationally as a centre of healthcare excellence, with more than 30% of our patients coming to us from outside the region to take advantage of our expertise. Some patients come from as far afield as the USA and the Middle East.

Quality matters

Newcastle Hospitals has a long-standing reputation for high quality clinical care, and our staff’s commitment to excellence is reflected in our consistent performance at the highest level.

You can find out more about our performance, and we were delighted to be rated in the 40 Top Hospitals by CHKS in 2013 for the 13th consecutive year - one of only three trusts in the country to achieve this.
