NORTHAMPTON GENERAL HOSPITAL
Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust has been running with a mission to provide solid health services in Northamptonshire. It has been known to conduct timely research and enhance medical care depending on the rising demand.
On 10 January 2020, Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust (NGH) and Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (KGH) announced their commitment to creating a Hospital Group, in order to strengthen health services across the whole of Northamptonshire, rather than working independently and, in some respects, in competition.
With humble beginnings, the Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust
started its clinical services for the community way back in the year 1744. From then on, they have grown slowly with a mission to help the medically needy people in the area. Today, their team of medical professionals serves a diverse population of more than 380,000 people. The trust's primary medical area deals with clinical issues like; hyper-acute stroke, vascular and renal cases. NGH attends to people from Northamptonshire and parts of Buckinghamshire.
