Welcome to Northampton General Hospital, our vision is to provide the best possible care for all our patients and to help us achieve that, we believe that everyone working here has two jobs: delivering great care and improving care. We value every employee working in every team across the organisation, whether you’re on the frontline delivering acute services or supporting our clinical teams behind the scenes.


Love Nursing, Love Northampton

We are the first UK hospital on international standards programme

Northampton General Hospital has become the first NHS hospital in the UK to sign up to an internationally-recognised programme for nursing and midwifery standards.

The Pathway to Excellence programme recognises hospitals for the quality of patient care and professional satisfaction of the nurses and midwives who work in them. The programme is delivered by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).

Carolyn Fox, director of nursing, midwifery and patient services, said: “Achieving Pathway to Excellence designation will be a huge milestone in our journey of improvement.

We’ve chosen to adopt this programme because it mirrors exactly what we’re working to achieve here in Northampton, a culture where our nurses and midwives feel inspired and valued and where we aim to deliver the best possible care for our patients. It opens up exciting new opportunities to learn from a global community of healthcare settings, all sharing a common aim of achieving excellent standards of care.”

I love working at NGH because I love the people that I work with, it’s like one big happy family.”
