About Our Partnership

The Humber Health Partnership is one of the largest acute and community Partnership arrangements in the NHS, seeing well over one million patients every year and managing a budget of over £1.4 billion.

Born from two Trusts – Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (HUTH) and Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust (NLAG) our Partnership has significant ambitions and is committed to delivering world-class hospital and community services for the 1.65 million people we serve.

We employ nearly 20,000 staff. Our five main hospital sites are Hull Royal Infirmary, Castle Hill Hospital, Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital, Grimsby, Scunthorpe General Hospital and Goole and District Hospital. We deliver community services to North Lincolnshire.

As Teaching Hospitals working with the Hull York Medical School, we both lead and contribute to research in many areas – biomedical research, primary care, palliative medicine, cardiovascular and respiratory medicine, vascular surgery, cancer surgery and oncology.

Our services provide secondary and tertiary care to an extended population.

We have a Major Trauma Centre and Unit; regional neurosurgery services; regional hyper-acute stroke including mechanical thrombectomy; regional vascular surgical services including wound care services and research; a regional cardiac unit including cardiac and thoracic surgery as well as cardiology services at secondary and tertiary service level; regional oncology diagnosis and treatment in a specialist cancer centre. We have had capital investment of over £70m to our urgent and emergency care services in the last 8 years across the Group and have some of the best emergency and acute assessment patient accommodation in the country. We will be responsible for four Community Diagnostic Centres, due to open in 2024-25.
