Overview of how we fit into the NHS structure

The NHS is divided into two sections: primary care and secondary care.

Secondary care is known as acute health care and can be either elective or emergency care. Elective care means either planned specialist medical care or surgery usually following referral from a primary or community health professional such as a GP.

Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust is an Acute Hospital, providing a wide range of general and specialist services.
