We also provide bowel and breast screening services as well as community dental and other community-based services to a wider population in Teesside and Durham.
Our turnover is around £275 million and we have close to 5,500 medical, nursing, clinical and non-clinical staff.
Every member of our organisation is committed to providing the very best care to our patients, whether they are being treated in our hospitals or out in the community.
North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust was formed when North Tees Health NHS Trust and Hartlepool and East Durham NHS Trust merged on 1 April 1999.
We have been authorised as an NHS Foundation Trust since December 2007, providing a wide range of health and healthcare services across and beyond our local areas.
Our Trust has two hospitals:
- The University Hospital of Hartlepool
- The University Hospital of North Tees (based in Stockton-on-Tees)
We also provide our services in a number of community facilities to help our local population. To see a full list of our community services, please visit our community services page.
Our commitment to you
The safety and wellbeing of our patients, service users and staff is at the heart of everything we do.
At North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust, we put great emphasis on our patients, staff and local population.
As a member of our community, you are key to what we do. We formulate our goals and our corporate strategy around your care.
For more information about our shared values, please visit our values page.
Successful organisations have a shared purpose, know where they’re going and they know how they’re going to get there.
Our strategy is shaped by staff from right across the Trust, our patients, our governors and our partners.
We have four Trust strategic aims that we are consistently working to implement and perfect. They are:
- Putting our population first
- Valuing people
- Transforming our services
- Health and wellbeing
For more information on how we are improving ourselves for the better of our patients and local community, please visit our vision and mission page.
How we work
We have a devoted board of directors who collectively set our strategic goals and direction.
We also have a council of governors who hold the board to account as ambassadors for the Trust and our patients.
Our Trust is split up into clinical and corporate care groups, overseen by a care group director, care group manager and clinical lead.
These directors, managers and leads are accountable for the quality, performance and financial aspects of their area.
Our annual reports and accounts give an overview of the year and detail our future aims and plans.
