About Us

About Us

We are a modern and friendly Trust which provides hospital services for 420,000 people across Mansfield, Ashfield, Newark, Sherwood and parts of Derbyshire and Lincolnshire.

We employ more than 4,500 people across King’s Mill, Newark and Mansfield Community Hospitals, and we also run some services from Ashfield Community Health Village. We also have 700 great volunteers working across all of our sites.  In 2016/17 we:

  • Helped deliver 3,400 babies
  • Saw 150,000 patients at the King’s Mill Emergency Department
  • Held 440,000 outpatient appointments across our three sites

In the 2017 annual NHS staff survey we were rated the 4th best acute trust in the country for staff satisfaction with the quality of work and care we provide, and we had the best overall staff engagement rate for acute trusts in the East Midlands.

We are a committed member of the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP), which is now moving to an Integrated Care System (ICS).  In this system, NHS organisations, along with local councils and other partners take collective responsibility for all of our resources, delivering NHS standards, and improving the health of the population they serve.
