About us

York & Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides a comprehensive range of acute, specialist and community services to approximately 800,000 people living in and around York, Scarborough, North Yorkshire, North East Yorkshire and Ryedale - an area covering 3,400 square miles. Y&STHFT was formed as an NHS Trust in 1992 and authorised as a Foundation Trust on 1 April 2007.

The Trust has an annual turnover of approximately £484m and employs around 8,500 staff working across sites and in the community. Y&STHFT includes three acute hospitals in York, Scarborough and Bridlington, two community hospitals at Selby and Malton, and rehabilitation hospitals in York and Easingwold and is also a proud partner with the Hull York Medical School (HYMS), providing clinical placements and training for future doctors at Scarborough and York Hospitals.

The Trust has regular patterns of engagement with the Integrated Care System, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG), Health & Wellbeing Boards and City of York Council and North Yorkshire County Council in developing a service planning approach which is sustainable and beneficial to the wider community. Partnership working with Acute Trusts in the region is also paramount to developing a range of services, which are both cost effective and also provide greater choice to patients. There is continuing engagement with NHS England around the planning and delivery of specialist “secondary care plus” services which involves in some cases network/alliance arrangements with neighbouring Acute Trusts e.g. Hull and Harrogate.
