About Us

Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust provides general acute services for a population of 380,000 and hyper-acute stroke, vascular and renal services to people living throughout whole of Northamptonshire, a population of 684,000.  The Trust is also an accredited cancer centre and provides cancer services to a wider population of 880,000 who live in Northamptonshire and parts of Buckinghamshire.

In addition to the main hospital site, which is located close to Northampton town centre, the Trust also provides outpatient and day surgery services at Danetre Hospital in Daventry.  

The principal activity of the Trust is the provision of free healthcare to eligible patients.  We are a hospital that provides the full range of outpatients, diagnostics, inpatient and day case elective and emergency care and also a growing range of specialist treatments that distinguishes our services from many district general hospitals.  We also provide a very small amount of healthcare to private patients.

We are constantly seeking to expand our portfolio of hyper-acute specialties and to provide services in the most clinically effective way.  Examples are developments in both urological cancer surgery and laparoscopic colorectal surgery placing the Trust at the forefront of regional provision for these treatments.

We also train a wide range of clinical staff, including doctors, nurses, therapists, scientists and other professionals.

Our training and development department offers a wide range of clinical and non-clinical training courses, accessed in a variety of ways through a range of media including e-learning.  The Trust has excellent training facilities which were recently upgraded.
