Addenbrooke's is a centre of medical excellence. As an internationally known university teaching hospital, it is a natural centre for specialist services dealing with rare or complex conditions needing the most modern facilities, up-to-date treatment and the best doctors.
Many of the hospital's specialists are leaders in their fields. This means that care is of the highest standard and that local patients benefit from having this concentration of medical expertise on their doorstep.
Through Addenbrooke's, the Trust provides emergency, surgical and medical services for people living in the Cambridge area as well as being a centre of excellence for regional specialist services for organ transplantation, cancer, neurosciences, paediatrics and genetics.
Thirteen directorates are responsible for the delivery of clinical care through 51 specialties with the support of clinical diagnostic departments and therapy services. All this is supported by a corporate infrastructure of IT, finance, human resources, estates and facilities, corporate development and management, patient services and administration.
