Awarded Foundation Trust status in 2005, we provide a wide range of health services to the people of Rotherham (population approximately 252,000) and to an increasing number of patients from further afield. The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust was developed from the Rotherham General Hospitals NHS Trust. One of the first 35 Trusts in England and Wales to achieve NHS Foundation Trust status, it has developed a reputation as a thriving and successful organisation achieving recognition at local, regional and national levels.
The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust is an innovative, high performing organisation which continues to develop and grow at pace. One of the most forward-thinking trusts in the UK, we are at the leading edge of health service reform and achieving outstanding results. This is a very exciting time for the Trust. On 1 April 2011, we integrated with primary care services in Rotherham and with a number of Dental Services in Doncaster.
We aim to build a healthier future for our patients, their carers and families, our staff, and for anyone we care for. We are committed to implementing a vision that integrates hospital and community services and empowers our clinicians and managers to deliver real benefits to patients and their carers. We'll do this by providing healthcare services where they are most convenient and best suit our patients' needs.
The Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department deals with around 75,000 patients per year and there are approximately 55,000 inpatients and 250,000 outpatient attendances each year.
The Trust is an Associate Teaching Hospital of the University of Sheffield and has an active research programme delivered through local, regional, national and international research networks and consortia.
Rotherham Hospital is the Trust's main site but the Trust now operates out of a large number of other sites. Information about each site and the services it provides can be seen below:
