University Hospital of North Staffordshire serves a population of half a million in Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle-under-Lyme, the Staffordshire Moorlands and surrounding areas. It is the largest hospital in the area, providing a wide range of services for local people  and specialist services including cancer, cardiac, renal, neonatal and paediatric intensive care, neurosciences and respiratory for an area covering Staffordshire, Shropshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire and Wales.  University Hospital’s Emergency Department is one of the busiest in the country.
Work is well underway to build a new hospital that will bring all the acute hospital services together on one site from the current three.  The first building in the £370m investment will open its doors in Spring 2008 to provide maternity services, closely followed by the new cancer centre. Building work is scheduled to be completed by 2012, followed by a further two years of infrastructure and landscaping works.
University Hospital is a teaching hospital with an undergraduate medical school, working in partnership with Keele University to offer first class training and education to the doctors of tomorrow.  The Clinical Education Centre at the hospital is unusual in providing a learning environment where a range of clinical professions can come together to both further their professional training and develop the teamwork that is so effective on the wards.
University Hospital, in conjunction with Keele University and Combined Healthcare NHS Trust, built the Guy Hilton Research Centre which, from September 2006, has been supporting research in key national and local health priority areas, including respiratory medicine in children and adults, kidney diseases, cancer and improvement in the delivery of care of chronic diseases.  The centre, whose development was also supported by public donations, differs from many as it includes clinics where patients involved in research can be seen.  It allows researchers to take their basic science research out of the laboratory and into the clinic, applying new therapies and technologies for those who need them.
