Working for our organisation

Royal Stoke University Hospital was rebuilt in 2012 as part of a £400m initiative to bring all hospital services in Stoke-on-Trent onto one large campus site. Royal Stoke is a great place to work, learn and research. The hospital campus holds 80% of the Trust’s services, including the Major Trauma Centre and Emergency Centre. Royal Stoke receives major trauma patients from as far afield as Anglesey in North Wales and in total serves more than three million people. The A&E sees close to 150,000 people a year, making it one of the busiest departments in the country.

Many of UHNMs 450 consultants are based at Royal Stoke, and the main specialist services for the region are located here. These services include the major specialties of Cardiovascular, Neurosciences, Metabolic/GI, Women’s & Children’s, Musclo-Skeletal Services/Trauma and Oncology. To deliver all these services and the many others we provide the Trust has created major departments to deliver the patient care.
