The North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust was formed on 1 April 2017. The trust runs three busy hospitals – Peterborough City Hospital, Hinchingbrooke Hospital and Stamford and Rutland Hospital. Together they serve approximately 700,000 residents living in Cambridgeshire, South Lincolnshire and the neighbouring counties.
Our hospital sites offer a wide variety of acute services to a growing population. All three sites deliver inpatient and outpatient services. Additionally, we run outpatient and radiology services at Doddington Hospital and Princess of Wales Hospital, Ely.
Previously the three main acute hospitals were run by two separate trusts – Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Hinchingbrooke HealthCare NHS Trust. By combining the two trusts in 2017, we have been able to strengthen the clinical and financial sustainability of our hospitals which will help retain services that were previously deemed fragile and ensure patients can continue to be able to access treatments closer to home. In addition, the merger has increased the Trust’s offering to prospective employees – with greater opportunities to work in larger teams and across the diversity of its sites in order to gain wider experience in their field North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust employs 7,135 staff and is supported by an army of 400 volunteers who dedicate some of their free time to support hospital services mainly in patient-facing roles.
