Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (Website)

Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust became one of the first Foundation Trusts in April 2004. There are two hospitals within the Trust: Bradford Royal Infirmary and St Luke’s Hospital. The Trust also provides many services by a range of health professionals in the community, such as doctors, nurses, midwives and physiotherapists, from many different locations such as GP practices, community hospitals and other neighbouring hospitals in Airedale, Halifax and Huddersfield.

On 1 April 2011 a range of community and intermediate care services were integrated into Bradford Teaching Hospitals. Services which transferred included those delivered from the local community hospitals (Westwood Park and Eccleshill), a range of services delivered by GPs with Special Interest in gynaecology and urology, and services for stroke, TIA, sexual health, heart failure, cardiac rehabilitation, diabetes, parkinson's and haemoglobinopathy.

Bradford Teaching Hospitals are also known for the specialist services they provide, for example treating many different types of cancer, using specialist scanners for better investigations, treating children with metabolic problems, people with heart and circulation of blood problems and delivering the only cochlear implant service in Yorkshire for deaf people.

We have historically provided treatment very quickly compared to other hospitals in the country. We have significantly reduced the risk of infection through better facilities such as new wards, ensuring all of our staff are trained and making sure everywhere is thoroughly cleaned.

Since 2003, the Trust has built an excellent reputation for the training of new doctors in partnership with the Universities of Leeds and Bradford. They have built new facilities for those students and have plans to further increase these in the coming years. These facilities benefit all clinicians in training both for their first degree and post-graduate education programmes. This new role for the Foundation Trust came at the same time as developing their reputation in research. The Bradford Institute for Health Research is now attracting increased funding every year for new research.
