Our Hospital Group

In January 2020, Kettering and Northampton General Hospitals announced our intention to collaborate formally as a hospital group. On 1 July 2021, this vision became a reality as we launched the new University Hospitals of Northamptonshire NHS Group. We are really excited about working together to improve access to services and the quality of patient care we provide. Joining together as a Group has provided an opportunity to shape our future direction, ensuring we are committed to, and aligned with a single vision and mission with shared values and priorities. We also welcome the ability to become a more attractive employer, whether for people considering a career with us, or to those already working in our hospitals.



“We have an ambitious vision for the Group, and one which enables us to realise far greater benefits for our patients and staff than we would ever be able to achieve as separate hospital Trusts.”

Alan Burns, Group Chair
