UHSM is a major acute teaching hospital trust providing services for adults and children at Wythenshawe Hospital and Withington Community Hospital (the latter owned by Manchester PCT). We are recognised as a centre of clinical excellence and provide district general hospital services and specialist tertiary services to our local community.
Our fields of specialist expertise - including cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery, heart and lung transplantation, respiratory conditions, burns and plastics, cancer and breast care services – not only service the people of South Manchester, but help patients from across the North West and beyond. We are also recognised in the region and nationally for the quality of our teaching, research and development. Our major research programmes focus on cancer, lung disease, wound management and medical education.
UHSM has approximately 5,500 valued staff, including those employed by our Private Finance Initiative partner South Manchester Healthcare Limited. In recent years the Trust has consistently demonstrated sound financial management and generated annual revenue surpluses on our income that are re-invested in our services.
