Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust became a foundation trust on April 1, 2004 – one of the very first in the NHS to do so.
We employ more than 5,200 staff, all of whom are dedicated to providing the best possible healthcare to a population of 500,000. We also have the third-largest membership base in the country.
We currently operate over two main sites; Bradford Royal Infirmary provides the majority of inpatient services, and St Luke’s Hospital focuses more on outpatient and rehabilitation services.
Research and development
As a teaching hospital, the Foundation Trust is at the forefront of research and development in healthcare. This promotes a culture of learning and professional development that ensures that all doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals practice the highest clinical standards.
From the cradle of manufacturing technology in the 19th century, to the cradle of digital technology in the 21st, the youth and diversity of Bradford is an economic, creative and cultural strength.
Our district has 17,000 businesses including more FTSE 100 companies than any other city in the north of England.
From the best curry in the country, to the world’s turbo chargers, to breakthrough technologies help to manage chronic pain, we have something for everyone.
