Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust

Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust

NUH was established in 2006 following the merger of Nottingham City Hospital and Queen’s Medical Centre. We have a budget of just under £1billion, 90 wards and 1,700 beds across three main sites: QMC, City Hospital and Ropewalk House. We deliver district general services to 2.5 million residents of Nottingham, Nottinghamshire and its surrounding communities. Our specialist services allows us to deliver care to 4-5 million people from across the East Midlands and nationally for a handful of services.

  • QMC is where our Emergency Department (ED), Major Trauma Centre and the Nottingham Children’s Hospital are based. It is also home to the University of Nottingham’s School of Nursing and Medical School
  • Nottingham City Hospital is our planned care site, where our cancer centre, heart centre and stroke services are based, and where some of our emergency admissions units
  • Ropewalk House is where we provide a range of outpatient services, including hearing services.

We have a national and international reputation for many of our specialist services, including stroke, renal, neurosciences, cancer services and trauma.

We are at the forefront of many research programmes and new surgical procedures. In partnership with The University of Nottingham we host a Biomedical Research Centre carrying out vital research into hearing, digestive diseases, respiratory, musculoskeletal disease, mental health and imaging.

As a teaching trust we have a strong relationship with our colleagues at The University of Nottingham and other universities across the East Midlands, including Loughborough University, where we are part of the Olympic Legacy project.

We play a vital role in the education and training of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals.

Our vision

We want to be known for our pursuit of outstanding health outcomes and excellent patient and staff experience. We want to further develop our local hospital services in a way which better integrates them with community services, and ensure only patients who need to come into hospital for care do so. We also have an ambition to grow and further develop our specialist services to secure our future as a leading specialist centre.

Our values

We want our values and behaviours to capture what makes working at NUH and being part of “Team NUH” special. The standards apply to all of us, are part of everybody’s job and apply to every action we take, every decision we make and how we care for our patients, their family members, carers and each other. They underpin our ability to deliver exceptional patient care and create a great environment for everyone who works at NUH, and one where we consistently demonstrate to patients and staff that we listen and we care. We are in the process of refreshing our values, working with our patients and staff.
