Find out the latest developments towards creating a Single Hospital Service for Manchester, that will bring together the high quality expert care from each of the city’s hospitals into one organisation.

As a first step in October 2017, we brought together Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT) and University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UHSM) to create a new hospital Trust called Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT).

The next stage in the development of our Single Hospital Service is to bring North Manchester General Hospital (NMGH) into MFT. NMGH has a vital role to play in the city and will continue to provide a range of hospital services, including emergency and maternity care to the residents of North Manchester, Rochdale, Oldham, Bury, Salford and beyond.

Our vision for NMGH is that it will be:

  • A vibrant hospital providing high quality and effective services with excellent patient experience.
  • A well-connected hospital; integrated with on-site mental health services, services in the community, and local people and communities.
  • A hospital which generates jobs and growth in the local economy.
  • A hospital with 21st century estates and IT.
  • A sustainable hospital, both clinically and financially.
