South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust (STSFT)
South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust

Across South Tyneside and Sunderland we have worked closely together for several years and created a formal strategic alliance in 2016.  On 1 April 2019, we became South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust (STSFT) following the merger of City Hospitals Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust and South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust.

Together, our new Trust  provides acute hospital and community based healthcare services to a population of around 430,000 people in South Tyneside and Sunderland. We have a dedicated team of over 8,000 staff who deliver outstanding care and work together to achieve the highest possible standards of quality for our patients.
