About Us

Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust provides a broad range of community and inpatient mental health services, community services (including therapies), learning disability services, healthy lifestyle support and addictions services to people living in Hull, the East Riding of Yorkshire, Whitby, Scarborough, and Ryedale. We provide care to a population of 765,000 people of all ages who live within an area of more than 4,700 square kilometres, which contains some areas of isolated rurality, dispersed major settlements and pockets of significant deprivation.

The Trust also provides specialist services for children, including physiotherapy, speech and language therapy and support for children and young people and their families who are experiencing emotional or mental health difficulties.

Our specialist services, such as forensic support and offender health, support patients from the wider Yorkshire and Humber area and from further afield.

The Trust also runs Whitby Hospital, a community hospital providing inpatient, outpatient and community services to Whitby and the surrounding area, and eight GP practices - two in Hull and six in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

We employ approximately 2,800 staff across more than 79 sites at locations throughout Hull, the East Riding of Yorkshire, Whitby, Scarborough and Ryedale.

As a Teaching Trust, we work closely with our major academic partners, Hull York Medical School and Hull University, nurturing a workforce of tomorrow's doctors, nurses and other health professionals.
