Meet South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is the largest hospital trust in the Tees Valley, with two acute hospitals and services in a number of community hospitals.
The South Tees Trust covers a large geographical area, including urban and rural areas with individual health needs. There are several large areas affected by social deprivation and these areas require specific involvement to ensure engagement and prevent health inequality. Rural areas also have very specific needs.
The acute hospitals comprise the James Cook University Hospital, which offers a range of specialised services and is based in Middlesbrough, and the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton, North Yorkshire, a district general hospital serving a rural population of 122,000 people.
