Focusing on what really matters to patients
We want people to choose to be treated here because we can show we deliver high quality, safe, patient care thanks to the hard work and dedication of our staff.
We want you to be seen quickly because we know waiting for treatment or an operation can be a particularly anxious time.
We want you to be assured our wards and departments at The James Cook University Hospital, the Friarage Hospital and our community hospitals are clean and we are doing everything we can to reduce the risk of infection. We also want patients to feel safe when they are in our care and that they are treated with dignity and respect.
The trust’s continual high performance has earned us national recognition as a healthcare centre of excellence and we are proud of what we have achieved so far – a pride we hope is shared by the population we serve. Our aim now is to continue to build on what matters to you.
