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.
