Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust

Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the largest employers in the region, with around 17,000 people working at our three sites – Queens Medical Centre, City Hospital and Ropewalk House. NUH provides secondary care services to a population of over one million people in the Nottinghamshire area and specialist tertiary care to patients across the East Midlands. Our portfolio of specialist services includes heart, cancer centre, stroke, renal, neurosurgery and trauma. QMC is also home to the Nottingham Children’s Hospital, where 40,000 young patients from Nottinghamshire and beyond are cared for annually. In 2020 City Hospital became the first in the UK to be Magnet recognised by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), with our Children’s Hospital becoming the first in Europe to achieve the Pathway to Excellence accreditation from the ANCC. We are at the forefront of many world-leading research programmes and new surgical procedures. In partnership with the University of Nottingham, we operate two National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Units - in hearing and digestive diseases. NUH is in the top five trusts nationally in providing opportunities for patients to take part in clinical research studies. With the support of The Health Infrastructure Plan (HIP) we have been able to share an exciting plan called Tomorrow’s NUH. This project will allow us to redevelop our QMC and City hospital sites, including constructing some new buildings and carrying out major refurbishment work. The initiative will lead to major improvements both in health outcomes, and in people’s experience of using our services, as well as a reduction in health inequalities.
