Our history

North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Trust was formed when North Tees Health NHS Trust and Hartlepool and East Durham NHS Trust merged on 1 April 1999.

North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust was authorised as a NHS Foundation Trust in December 2007. We provide a wide range of health and healthcare services across and beyond our catchment area.

The trust has two hospitals:

  • The University Hospital of Hartlepool;
  • The University Hospital of North Tees in Stockton on Tees.

We have been providing care for patients in the community since 2008. We provide these services in a number of community facilities across the areas supported, including Peterlee Community Hospital and the One Life Centre Hartlepool, which was the first of the integrated care centres to be created under the Momentum: pathways to healthcare programme. This programme is transforming the shape of health services in our area by providing care in clinics, sports centres, children’s centres, schools and in people’s homes.
