Our vision is to provide the best possible care



Our Values

We have four core values:


What we do

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 692,000.  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.

Working in partnership                      Health_and_Care_Partnership_logo 

We are an active member of the Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership (NHCP), formerly known as the Northamptonshire STP, which consists of key health and care providers in the county.

NHCP is not a new organisation but a new way of working in partnership to improve health and care for people living in Northamptonshire.

All Partnership organisations remain as separate organisations with their own local responsibilities for the services they provide, but are committed to working together towards the shared NHCP vision for a positive lifetime of health, wellbeing and care in our community.

Further information about NHCP is available on their website 

You can also download an overview booklet explaining how health and care services operate in our county, providing background information about why there is a need to improve the way we do things, and outlining NHCP’s priorities for a positive lifetime of health, wellbeing and care in our community.
