The new Royal Manchester Children's Hospital opened on Thursday 11th June 2009. It has been designed so that all departments are close to the equipment and support that they need. This means patients and staff won't have to travel far within the hospital. It also has purpose-built accommodation with ensuite rooms for carers and families. With 371 beds it is the largest single-site children's hospital in the UK.
The new children's hospital provides:
- An integrated paediatric service to Greater Manchester and beyond
- Latest medical equipment and information technology.
- Play centre, schooling, family accommodation and adolescent facilities to cater for the needs of the whole family.
Children's services have relocated from Booth Hall and the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital in Pendlebury, as well as Saint Mary's, to the new Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
Parents and carers can visit at any time. Other visitors are welcome but are asked to leave by 8pm as children will be settling to sleep.
As space per bed is limited we ask that your child has no more than three visitors at any one time. On the day of your child's operation please keep visitors to a minimum.
All children visiting who are under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult. It is the parents' and carers' responsibility to supervise their children at the hospital.
If you or any visitors have been exposed to any infections such as chicken pox and measles, please check with staff before entering the ward.
