About us

In September 2015, Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust was chosen by NHS England as one of only three national providers to spearhead new ways of working and drive innovation, best practice and efficiency throughout the NHS.

Widely recognised as one of the country’s top performing NHS foundation trusts and one of only five nationally to be rated outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the Northumbria Foundation Group has been created to help the trust share its knowledge, expertise and support to other NHS organisations across the country.

Through the Northumbria Foundation Group, a range of clinical and corporate support services will be available to other parts of the NHS, using proven best practice models to improve productivity and clinical effectiveness, with the ultimate goal of improving patient care and experience.

Our vision is quite simply to create a more efficient and effective NHS by sharing what we know and helping organisations to improve quality of care, reduce costs and reinvest in frontline patient services.
