Named the City of Culture for 2017, Kingston-upon-Hull has more to offer than first meets the eye. Not only does the city boast two Super league rugby teams, but the Championship football team of Hull City AFC also resides here. As well as excellent shopping facilities, the city centre has exceptional transport links all over Yorkshire, including trains to the nearby cities of Leeds and York. Located less than an hours’ drive to the seaside town of Bridlington, Hull is also conveniently placed to the Humber Bridge, the gateway to Lincolnshire and beyond!

Hull & East Yorkshire Hospitals has benefitted from increased funding allowing for the development of new Emergency Care facilities for both adults and children, as well as the renovation of the main tower block at the Hull Royal Infirmary site.

There is also a new cardiac and elective surgery facility which provides specialist cardiothoracic care to patients from across Yorkshire.
