Addenbrooke's & the Rosie hospitals


Cambridge University Hospitals

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH) consists of Addenbrooke's and the Rosie hospitals. CUH is:

  • a leading national centre for specialist treatment;
  • a government-designated comprehensive biomedical research centre;
  • one of only five academic health science centres in the UK,
  • and a university teaching hospital with a worldwide reputation.

Building on these different elements, CUH's vision is to be one of the best academic healthcare organisations in the world. The Trust's priorities focus on a quality service which is all about people – patients, staff and partners. Its values – kind, safe and excellent – are at the heart of patient care, defining the way the Trust works and behaves.

History of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus


CUH is a 1,000-bed teaching hospital that sees around 700,000 patient admissions per year. It provides acute and specialist healthcare services for our local and regional population. Its philosophy of care explores smarter more efficient ways of working and puts its patients at the centre of this care. ACT's aim is to make a difference for these patients by providing additional state-of-the-art equipment, specialist staff, environmental enhancements and research to support patient care.
