Scunthorpe General Hospital is part of Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust, which provides acute hospital services and community services to a population of more than 400,000 people across North and North East Lincolnshire and East Riding of Yorkshire. 

We provide acute care at three hospitals, Diana Princess of Wales in Grimsby, Scunthorpe General Hospital and Goole Hospital. We also deliver community care in North Lincolnshire. 

In 2016-2017, our emergency departments received 132,000 attendances, we delivered more than 4,500 babies, carried out around 30,000 operations, treated 96,000 inpatients and booked 393,000 outpatient appointments.

Our annual budget is £330 million and we employ around 6,500 people.

In March 2017 the Trust was placed in financial special measures as it tries to reduce an expected £43.3m deficit for 2017-2018.

In April 2017 the Care Quality Commission, the independent regulator of health and social care in England gave the Trust an overall rating of inadequate, although it rated Goole Hospital and our community services as good. Scunthorpe General Hospital was rated as inadequate and Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital was rated as requires improvement. Following the report the Trust was placed in special measures for quality.

As a result we have developed our Improving Together programme – a wide-ranging transformation being implemented by staff across the trust. It aims to:

  • Make sure services are safe
  • Get more staff, particularly doctors, in post and do more to keep existing staff
  • Put clinicians, particularly doctors, at the heart of running the trust
  • Make sure the trust listens to staff, responds more effectively and keeps them informed about what is going on
  • Make sure money is spent in the most effective way to ensure quality care.

We are a member of the Humber Coast and Vale Sustainability and Transformation Partnership, which brings together NHS and social care to to deliver high quality and effective care.
