Exciting times ahead

In January 2020 we announced our commitment to working closer with Kettering General Hospital by moving towards a group management model to strengthen health services in Northamptonshire. This shows our firm commitment to greater collaboration between our two hospitals and of our senior management teams to work much more closely together.  Both trust boards agree we should start to implement the group management model during 2020.   Our first step will be to recruit and appoint a group chief executive officer by the spring


We are doing this

  • To strengthen health services in Northamptonshire
  • To increase collaboration, not competition, to develop first class services
  • To respond to the key challenges of population growth, rising demand, future clinical and financial stability at the same time as maintaining high standards of care
