Welcome NCHDs – 2018
St James’s Hospital is an inner city hospital with a national reach. It has grown from humble origins as a Poor Law workhouse in teh 19th Century into a major academic teaching hospital. It has a proud tradition of caring for the poorest and sickest sections of our community. The people who work here care deeply about the hospital. They understand what it takes to offer dignity and support to people at a vulnerable time in their lives. This culture of caring is deeply embedded and is matched by a mutual respect reflecting the fact that we stand together to create an enviroment where we can provide safe and effective care.
