We are responsible for running a family of ten hospitals across seven separate sites, providing a wide range of services from comprehensive local general hospital care through to highly specialised regional and national services.

We are the main provider of hospital care to approximately 750,000 people in Manchester and Trafford and the single biggest provider of specialised services in the North West of England.

Building on the NHS contribution to the 100,000 Genomes Project, the introduction of a national genomic medicine service has created 7 Genomic Laboratory Hubs (GLHs). The North West GLH is one of these seven GLHs and is hosted by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust and includes sites in both Manchester and Liverpool.

This is a challenging time to work in healthcare and we are on an exciting mission to provide world-class healthcare to the people of the North West and for some of our services, nationally and internationally.
