Sheffield Children's Trust is one of the United Kingdom's NHS hospital trusts mainly providing healthcare for Children in Sheffield and the surrounding area of South Yorkshire. A third of patients come from the outside Sheffield, from all parts of the country, but especially from Barnsley, Rotherham, Doncaster, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.[1]

It has a turnover of £70 million a year, and over a year sees 75,000 Outpatients, 20,000 Inpatients/day cases, 43,426 Accident & Emergency attendances, 12,670 Mental Health assessments and attendances and 28,874 Therapy assessments and attendances.[1] The Trust employs around 1,700 people and also provides clinical education for medical students from the University of Sheffield and for nurses from Sheffield Hallam University.

Although the trust itself was only formed in 1992 it runs the Sheffield Children's Hospital which has been providing care for the children and families of Sheffield and surrounding areas for over 125 years. It is one of only four specialist NHS Trusts in England providing care exclusively to children and young people, and has many other sites in the city. The Trust's charity, Sheffield Children's Hospital Charity, helps to raise funds to support and enhance the services at the Trust. The charity's patrons include Michael Palin and England Cricketer Michael Vaughan (his wife, Nichola Shannon, works as a management accountant for the Sheffield Children's Trust).
