About The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust
The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust is
an innovative, high-performing organisation that 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. In 2011 we integrated with primary care
services in Rotherham and with a number of Dental Services in Doncaster.
The Urgent and Emergency Care Centre (open since 2017), deals with around 105,000 attendances per year (based on 290 patients per
day) and there
are approximately 30,000 day cases, 40,000
inpatients and 250,000 outpatient attendances at the Trust 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 also operates out of a large number of other sites and our colleagues also care for patients in their own homes.
Information about some of the main sites and the services it provides can be seen below:
