Latest information: COVID-19 (coronavirus)We are open for new referrals and are offering online consultations to our patients. We are working with the NHS to determine the most clinically appropriate diagnostic tests or procedures to carry out at this time and will only be offering face-to-face appointments for patients meeting these criteria.
If you have an outpatients’ appointment, scan or surgery booked with us these will be going ahead as planned, unless you hear directly from us.
For more information please read our FAQs here.
Ensuring we treat who we can, as quickly as we can, safelyWe are committed to reducing the time people have to wait to be seen, but acknowledge that it’s taking longer than it was before the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
As it stands, our formal agreement to support the NHS continues but the agreement now allows us to see patients paying for themselves and those with Private Medical Insurance.
To ensure we help as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, we’re extending hospital opening hours and, where we can, increasing the size of our teams, while ensuring that COVID-19 safety measures are strictly adhered to.

Following the recent CQC inspection of the Nuffield Health North Staffordshire Hospital, Hospital Director Ann Brunt said:
“I welcome the findings of the CQC inspection which rated the Nuffield Health North Staffordshire Hospital ‘Good’ overall across Surgery, Outpatients and Diagnostic Imaging. Services were found to be ‘well led, caring and responsive to the needs of patients’.
The CQC highlighted the hospitals integrated approach to safe practice with well-established risk management and quality processes in place. The report also highlights the consistently positive feedback from patients and the hospitals excellent track record on safety.
I am however, disappointed with some of the findings in relation to our surgery service which identified some inconsistencies in practice. We have taken immediate steps to address the areas highlighted in the report.
Patient safety, infection prevention and high quality care are our number one priority and we will continue to focus our efforts to ensure the hospital delivers the highest standards for our patients.
Should any patient have questions or concerns about any of our services or the content of the CQC report, they should contact the Nuffield Health North Staffordshire directly.”
