North Manchester General Hospital is the largest hospital within the Trust and is located in Crumpsall, 3.5 miles north of Manchester City Centre.

The hospital has a full accident and emergency department, which includes a separate paediatric A&E unit. It also offers a full range of general and acute surgical services and is the base for the region's specialist infection disease unit. The site is also home to the Trust's main headquarters.

The hospital site was originally three separate hospitals, namely Crumpsall Hospital, Springfield Hospital and Delaunays Hospital, and is now the only hospital serving the North Manchester area after the closure of other hospitals in the area.

In recent years, the hospital has undergone extensive work to improve its size and layout. The hospital has particularly benefitted from a £35m investment in the Women and Children's department, which now offers a level 2 neonatal unit, maternity, labour and children's wards.

Maternity Services - North Manchester General Hospital

In 2010,  the Trust invested £35m to improve maternity facilities and services for women, children and babies at North Manchester General Hospital.

This investment was part of a scheme called ‘Making it Better,’ a Greater Manchester-wide programme of change to maternity services. The new development and investment means that North Manchester General Hospital is now able to offer a full range of high quality maternity services to women, children and babies.

The facilities are bright and spacious and there is a dedicated team of specialist doctors, nurses, midwives and allied staff on hand to provide women with the highest quality of care. The Bluebell Birth Centre is our co-located midwife led unit, which offers a fantastic low tech environment for low risk women to birth their baby.
