About us


Our Vision

NWA Staff

Our Vision & Values are shaped by the North West Anglia Team, following feedback from the Trust’s staff, patients, and the local community of our three hospitals. Our vision is:

‘Working together to be the best at providing outstanding care for local communities’

Our Values

Our staff have also generated our Trust values:

How our staff live to these values is set out through our ‘personal responsibility framework’ – which outlines how staff are expected to behave.

The Trust board monitors and reviews how the Trust performs against the values on a regular basis, ensuring we provide the best possible patient care.

Our Trust

Three hospitals make up North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, whilst retaining their individual names and identity.

Peterborough City Hospital


Peterborough City Hospital at Bretton Gate, Peterborough, is a state-of-the-art, purpose built facility which opened to its first patients in November 2010. The hospital has 678 inpatient beds and patients are cared for on modern wards with either single ensuite rooms or three to four-bedded ward areas, each with their own bathroom. This affords our patients far greater privacy than before and meets the NHS same sex accommodation criteria. The hospital has a Haematology/Oncology Unit, including a recently-expanded radiotherapy suite, an expanded Renal Unit, an Emergency Centre with a separate children’s emergency department, a dedicated Women’s and Children’s unit, a cardiac unit, a respiratory investigations facility and full diagnostic imaging facilities.

Hinchingbrooke Hospital


Hinchingbrooke Hospital is a 330 bed district general hospital located at Hinchingbrooke Park in Huntingdon. The hospital opened in 1983 and provides a wide range of specialties including general surgery, ear, nose and throat, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, urology, breast surgery, gynaecology and vascular services. The hospital has an emergency department and maternity unit. Children’s inpatient and outpatient services are provided on site by Cambridgeshire Community Services.  Also on the hospital site is the 23-bed Treatment Centre which opened in 2005.  A new theatre block is due to open in Spring 2023 and the re-building of the hospital is a longer term ambition.

Stamford & Rutland Hospital


Our hospital at Stamford has 22 inpatient beds on the John Van Geest ward and provides a range of outpatient clinic services, a minor injuries unit, and a day case surgery facility. It is also the base for the Trust’s pain management services. A programme to redevelop Stamford Hospital was completed in July 2017 – this saw the installation of a permanent MRI scanning suite on site, expanded facilities for blood taking and outpatient clinics, a new chemotherapy and lymphoedema suite, an improved physiotherapy gym, new administration facilities and a refurbished health clinic facility.

We also provide Outpatient and Radiology services at Doddington Hospital and Princess of Wales Ely, plus radiology at North Cambs Hospital, Wisbech and the City Care Centre, Peterborough.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

The Trust launched the Inclusion as Standard accreditation scheme in 2018. The scheme is a commitment that any patient, visitor or staff member can expect the Trust’s facilities to meet their needs regardless of disability, race, religion, additional need or any other protected characteristic.

The Trust adopts a co-production model of working to help staff develop practices and policies which affect them. In 2019, staff with care responsibilities were able to help design a new policy for staff carers which has now been sent for approval. Our staff networks are open to all staff and we have the following networks available:

  • BAME staff network
  • Disabled staff network
  • Carers staff network
  • LGBTQIA+ staff network
  • Armed Forces Community
  • Women's Staff Network

The Trust’s work and initiatives related to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion have been recognised as follows:

Chartered Governance Institute
