Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust (Website

"I received excellent teaching and compared to my friends in London, one of the best rotations for foundation years."

Jacob Wright, Bart’s graduate, EY Trainee 2006/2008

Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals is an acute Trust based on two sites, Hull Royal Infirmary (HRI) in the city centre and Castle Hill Hospital (CHH) 5 miles away in open countryside.

The Trust has approx. 900 beds creating a large, busy teaching environment offering a range of specialties. The Hull and East Yorkshire area has high rates of adult obesity, heart disease, stroke, cancer and teenage pregnancy which provide trainees with a wide variety of learning experiences and has led to substantial investment and development of specialist facilities.

On the CHH site, this includes:

  • The recently opened Queen’s Centre for Oncology and Haematology.
  • A state-of-the-art cardiac and surgical unit.
  • The Daisy Building, a research and teaching facility built in partnership with HYMS and the University of Hull’s Postgraduate Medical Institute (PGMI).
  • The former Strategic Health Authority (SHA) also commissioned a multi-professional Clinical Skills building on the HRI site, which was opened in early 2011.

Many departments have high profile research programmes and are integrally involved with both HYMS and the University of Hull. The Trust is a major part of the HYMS teaching Faculty, a role which extends into the Postgraduate teaching of Foundation trainees and beyond.

Hull: European City of Culture 2017

Hull is an up and coming city undergoing massive redevelopment, and was the European City of Culture 2017.  This has created a legacy of art, music and culture, building on Hulls star studded cultural history. 

With multi-million pound investment, lots of new housing is springing up in the city centre as well as on the Marina and other popular areas such as the Avenues. House prices are significantly lower than the national average.

The St. Stephen’s regeneration project was completed in 2009 and has provided Hull with a state of the art transport interchange integrating rail and bus services, a new shopping centre, cinema and a new home for the acclaimed Hull Truck Theatre.

Hull boasts two Super league Teams; Hull KR and Hull FC and one Championship football team; Hull City A.F.C, nicknamed the Tigers. Hull KR play at the KC Lightstream Stadium. Hull FC and Hull City A.F.C play at the magnificent MKM Stadium.

For a great night out, try Hull’s old town or Princes Avenue / Newland Avenue for pavement cafes, bars and restaurants providing a cosmopolitan atmosphere day and night, both less than a mile away from the Infirmary. Music venues are plentiful and vary in size from the new Bonus arena to the world class Adelphi Club where a lot of famous names started their career.
