We pride ourselves on being a friendly, local hospital, providing a wide range of services within the borough of Trafford, west of Manchester.
The Division has just under 1,450 staff and is supported by a network of volunteers. Services are provided at Trafford General, Altrincham and Stretford Memorial Hospitals and in the community. We have an accident and emergency department at Trafford General Hospital and a minor injuries unit at Altrincham Hospital.
Our services include general surgery and medicine; children's services; cardiology (heart); orthopaedics (bones); audiology (hearing); elderly care; dermatology (skin); respiratory (lungs); sexual health; ear, nose and throat and urology services.
The Trafford General Hospital site is host to our Intermediary Neuro-Rehabilitation Unit; the Critical Care Skills Institute, the Trafford Macmillan Care Centre; a number of facilities managed by Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust and Teddy Bears' Corner, a private day nursery. Stretford Memorial Hospital is host to Trafford Combined Care Centre and a carers' centre.
The Division works closely with the Trafford and Manchester Clinical Commissioning Groups, Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust and Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council to ensure services are joined up and effective. Allied Health Professional staff, such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, dietitians, podiatrists and orthoptists, are employed by Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust but work alongside Trafford Healthcare staff as full members of the same clinical teams providing a comprehensive range of services both in Trafford Hospitals and in the community.
The NHS in Trafford needs to change to ensure that we continue to provide the best quality, most effective and safest care for local residents and secure the future of Trafford General Hospital.
