NCA is one of the largest NHS organisations in the country, providing the benefit of scale while delivering a range of healthcare services at four hospitals and associated community services. Around 19,000 expert NHS staff serve a population of more than 1.3 million people, as well as many others from the UK and Europe who access our specialist services.

NCA has an annual operating budget of £1.3bn, but that money goes straight into running the core services that people have come to expect from their local NHS.
