About us

Who we are

We provide community, acute (hospital-based treatment) and specialist health services to around half a million people living in the Wakefield and North Kirklees areas. We also treat patients who choose to use our services from surrounding areas, including South Leeds, North Yorkshire, Barnsley and Doncaster.


Since it was established in April 2002, our Trust has provided mainly hospital services. In 2010, our Trust also started providing community therapy services and intermediate care services. These services provide short-term specialist care to people who have been discharged from hospital but need extra support, care and rehabilitation before they go home or to the place where they normally live.


In April 2011, our Trust expanded to provide community health services for the Wakefield district to include Adult Community Nursing and Children’s and Families’ Health Services to become a new integrated care organisation for local people. We have an annual income of more than £460m and employ more than 8,000 staff.


Our Trust completed a major hospital development programme in March 2011, which involved opening new, state-of-the-art hospitals in Wakefield (Pinderfields) and Pontefract. Alongside the excellent modern hospital in Dewsbury, these fantastic new buildings are helping to transform local patient care.
