Northampton General Hospital is a NHS Trust hospital in Northampton, Northamptonshire, England. The hospital was founded in 1744 and moved to its present site in 1793, and has continued to provide healthcare to the local community for more than 200 years.[2] The hospital covers South Northamptonshire (Northampton, Brackley, Daventry and other towns and villages in the area) the hospital also provides specialist cancer services to people living in Northamptonshire, North Buckinghamshire and South Leicestershire.[3] The hospital has 14 operating areas, which includes six ‘main’ theatres and four trauma and orthopaedic theatres. Anaesthetic support is provided in many other areas including intensive care.[4]

Two series of BBC Three's Bizarre ER were filmed at the hospital.

In October 2012, the Macmillan Haematology Unit, a multi-million pound cancer facility, was opened by the Countess of Halifax, President of Macmillan Cancer Support.[5]

Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust

Dr Sonia Swart was appointed chief executive of Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust in September 2013, having formerly been the trust's medical director since 2007.[6]

In October 2013 as a result of the Keogh Review the Trust was put into the highest risk category by the Care Quality Commission.[7]

On 27 March 2014 the Care Quality Commission published its report following an inspection of the trust. [8] As well as identifying areas for improvement there were a number of positive findings. The trust was judged as good across all services for ‘caring’ and inspectors found that, in the main, the safety and effectiveness of services had been maintained, despite the overriding urgent care pressures. In August 2014 the trust reported that good progress had been made against the agreed action plan. [9]
