Thanks to: ACT, the fundraising charity dedicated to make our hospitals even better for patients. Addenbrooke’s Arts, for enhancing the hospital environment through an innovative, stimulating and engaging arts programme. NIHR Cambridge Clinical Research Facility for providing state-of-the-art clinical research facilities to support world-class research at our hospitals. East Anglian Air Ambulance for providing footage of their life-saving work.

Cambridge University Hospitals is a family of hospitals comprising Addenbrooke’s and The Rosie. As part of the NHS, we deliver expert care for patients – locally, regionally and nationally – while our vibrant teaching community equips and empowers our staff for the future. We also benefit from and contribute to some of the most important biomedical research in the world today.


We bring together our daily experiences of patient-led care, our renowned teaching hospital and our ground-breaking research programmes to deepen our understanding of medicine as a science and a practice. We learn as much from our dedicated staff and the patients they care for as we do from our scientists and research partners. Every member of our community is part of the effort. Everything we do, we do together.

Our hospitals

  • Addenbrooke’s provides emergency, surgical and medical care for local people and is also a regional centre of excellence for specialist services such as organ transplantation, neurosciences, paediatrics and genetics.
  • Based on the same site, The Rosie is a women’s hospital and the regional centre of excellence for maternity care. It has its own theatre suite, fetal assessment unit, ultrasound department and neonatal intensive care unit.
