Our organisation

We're based in the heart of Nottingham and provide services to over 2.5 million residents of Nottingham and its surrounding communities. We also provide specialist services for a further 3-4 million people from across the region.

We're one of the largest employers in the region, employing around 15,000 people at QMC, Nottingham City Hospital and Ropewalk House.

  • QMC is where our Emergency Department (A&E), Major Trauma Centre and the Nottingham Children’s Hospital are based. QMC is also home to the University of Nottingham’s School of Nursing and Medical School
  • Nottingham City Hospital is our planned care site, where our cancer centre, heart centre and stroke services are based
  • Ropewalk House is where we provide a range of outpatient services, including hearing services

We have 90 wards and around 1,700 beds. 

We have a national and international reputation for many of our specialist services, including stroke, renal, neurosciences, cancer services and trauma.

We are at the forefront of many research programmes and new surgical procedures. In partnership with The University of Nottingham we host a Biomedical Research Centre carrying out vital research into hearing, digestive diseases, respiratory, musculoskeletal disease, mental health and imaging. 

As a teaching trust we have a strong relationship with our colleagues at The University of Nottingham and other universities across the East Midlands, including Loughborough University, where we are part of the Olympic Legacy project.

We play a vital role in the education and training of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals.

DisabledGo

disabled go logoDisabled Go are an award-winning disability organisation that has been in operation since 2000. They produce online access guides in a great deal of detail on a huge range of venues including the QMC and the City Hospital.

During our initial survey, surveyors from Disabled Go spent several months at our hospitals surveying corridors, wards, parking facilities, clinics and other public areas of the hospital for ease of wheelchair access, WC facilities, access to interpreters, large print information leaflets and many other criteria.

This information is now available to view online via the Disabled Go internet site. Links for which can be found below.

Over the coming months we will be working with Disabled Go to add links from specific pages in our website about services to the direct page on the Disabled Go website about that same service.
