ⓘ Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust

Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust run the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead, Dunston Hill Hospital, QE Metro Riverside and some services at Bensham Hospital, within Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, England. They also run services from Blaydon Primary Care Centre and Washington Primary Care Centre.

In November 2013 it was announced that the trust was the selected software base for the Department of health of the company to implement its neutral archive provider for a multi-stage project of image management within the framework of developing a comprehensive electronic system of tracking patients.

In 2014 the trust established a subsidiary company, BP complexes, OOO, which was granted 564 estates and facilities staff. The intention was to achieve benefits on VAT payment, and also pay a savings account, by hiring new staff on less expensive-the NHS contracts. There are exemptions from the payment of VAT as NHS trusts can only claim VAT on a small group of goods and services that they buy. The value added tax act 1994 provides the mechanism through which NHS trusts can apply for compensation for contract services.
