The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough is one of Europe’s most modern hospitals.

James Cook provides a wide range of district general hospital services and specialist services including neurosciences, renal medicine, spinal injuries, major trauma, cardiothoracicvascular surgery and cancer services.

All our specialties are delivered from one site which is unique for a hospital of our size.

The accident and emergency department is the designated major trauma centre for the southern half of the northern region and the hospital has a dedicated 24-hour acute admissions unit.

We recently completed a £35million cancer redevelopment and are now proud to provide some of the best facilities in Europe.
