Across South Tyneside and Sunderland we have worked closely together for several years and created a formal strategic alliance in 2016.  On 1 April 2019, we became South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust (STSFT) following the merger of City Hospitals Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust and South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust.

Together, our new Trust provides acute hospital and community based healthcare services to a population of around 430,000 people in South Tyneside and Sunderland. We have a dedicated team of over 8,000 staff who deliver outstanding care and work together to achieve the highest possible standards of quality for our patients.

Our welcome pack has lots of useful information including our Trust vision, values and strategic plans, our organisational structure, a year in numbers for 2018/19 and much, much more. Read our welcome pack here
