Formed in 2006, we are now one of the biggest and busiest acute Trusts in England, employing 14,500 staff. We provide services to over 2.5 million residents of Nottingham and its surrounding communities. We also provide specialist services to a further 3-4 million people from neighbouring counties each year.
The Trust is made up of Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham City Hospital and Ropewalk House.
- Queen’s Medical Centre – our emergency care site (where our Emergency Department is located)
- Nottingham City Hospital – where our Cancer Centre, Heart Centre and stroke services are based and where we focus on planned care and the care of patients with long-term conditions
- Ropewalk House – where we provide a range of outpatient services, including hearing services
We have achieved a national and international reputation for many of our specialist services, including stroke, renal, neurosciences, cancer services and trauma. QMC is home to the Nottingham Children’s Hospital.
The Trust has an annual income of £824 million, 87 wards and circa 1,700 beds.
We are at the forefront of many research programmes and new surgical procedures. Nottingham is the only NHS trust and university partnership in the country to have three successful bids for Biomedical Research Units in hearing, digestive diseases and respiratory medicine.
As a teaching trust we have a strong relationship with our colleagues at the University of Nottingham and other universities across the East Midlands, including Loughborough University. We play a vital role in the education and training of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals.
