Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust (Website)

Around half a million people living in the Wakefield and North Kirklees districts of West Yorkshire use our services in our three main hospitals – Pinderfields in Wakefield, Dewsbury and District Hospital and Pontefract - and in the community as well. People also travel from other areas to use our services as part of patient choice.

When our Trust was established in April 2002, we provided mainly hospital services but in 2010 we also started providing community therapy services and intermediate care services. These services provide short-term specialist care to people who have been discharged from hospital but need extra support, care and rehabilitation before they go home.

In April 2011, we expanded to provide community health services for the Wakefield district to include Adult Community Nursing and Children’s and Families’ Health.

Our services are provided from three hospital sites and in a range of community settings such as health centres, clinics, GP surgeries, family centres and in people’s own homes. We have an annual income of more than £455m and employ nearly 8,000 staff.
