The Central Sheffield University Hospitals NHS Trust (CSUH NHS Trust) was established under section 5 of the National Health Service and Community Care Act, 1990, by statutory order of October 1991. The Trust was established on 1 November 1991 and until it came into full operation on 1 April 1992, Sheffield Health Authority provided assistance.

The & apos;associated hospitals& apos; were the Jessop Hospital for Women, Nether Edge Hospital and a small part of Lodge Moor Hospital. The Charles Clifford Dental Hospital was also integrated within the CSUH NHS Trust in 1995. CSUH NHS Trust merged with Weston Park Hospital NHS Trust on 1 April 1999 to become a major teaching hospital, with improved close relations with the Northern General Hospital.
Central Sheffield University Hospitals NHS Trust and the Northern General Hospital NHS Trust merged on 1 April 2001 to form the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, which then achieved Foundation status on 1 July 2004.
