About the Trust

South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust is a £210m provider organisation. Providing a full range of community services across South Tyneside, Gateshead and Sunderland, and hospital services in South Tyneside, the Trust is in a prime position to be one of the country`s leading integrated care providers.

We are a recognised high performing Trust, regularly ranked in the Top 40 hospitals, and previously ranked as excellent by the Care Quality Commission when those classifications were used. The CQC inspected the Trust in November 2013, and gave an extremely positive outcome report.

Brief History

On 1st January 2005 South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust was authorised as one of the new NHS Foundation Trusts. We believe that the way a NHS Foundation Trust works will help us to improve the services we provide even further and to do so faster, and in keeping with what local people want. 

With effect from 1st July 2011, community health services in Gateshead, South Tyneside and Sunderland transferred to South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust from NHS South of Tyne and Wear as part of the Government’s Transforming Community Services programme.
