County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest integrated care providers in England, serving a population of around 650,000 people.

We are a high performing organisation with a track record of success. We have been listed in the CHKS 40 top hospitals for the last five years, and were named as one of Dr Foster's Trusts of the Year in 2009.

The Trust has been an integrated acute and community services provider since 2011, and a Foundation Trust since 2007.

All our employees are strong team workers highly committed to achieving our healthcare objectives and improving the patient experience. This means we have a wealth of opportunities for people to join us at all levels.

Imagine you're the patient - that's the simplest way to explain our approach to healthcare. We place the individual at the centre of everything we do, not just their condition and treatment. This means listening to what people have to say, recognising their needs and responding appropriately.

As a forward-looking Trust, we're committed to continuous improvement and you'll be able to share your ideas with us. Here we value everyone's opinion - if you have a suggestion on how we can improve our services then we welcome it. We all have a part to play. Truly this is a place where ambitions are being realised everyday.
