Service and Site Investment

Phase 1 Artist Impression

We are now eagerly counting down to the opening of our state-of-the-art Orthopaedic facility which will open on our Wrightington Hospital site in December 2015.

The £18m development will contain:

  • Two new wards with a total of 56 beds, most of which will be single room accommodation
  • A new admissions unit
  • A four bay operating theatre complex with 7 space recovery area

  Phase 1 single room

The facility has been built to the latest NHS estate guidance and, when opened will ensure that the patient experience is significantly improved. In addition, the unit will allow our clinical teams to make further clinical advances, such as reducing lengths of stay and fully implementing our enhanced recovery programme whilst maintaining our fantastic standards of: -

  • Low infection rates
  • Low revision rates
  • Low readmission and complication rates



The new facility should strengthen the Trust’s reputation for being a centre of excellence for Orthopaedic Surgery and allow us to continue being one of the biggest providers of Orthopaedic services in North West.
