All About Royal Manchester Children's Hospital

Our history...

Manchester has boasted top quality health services for 180 years. Manchester Royal Infirmary was founded in 1829 in Manchester city centre thanks to charitable donations. Florence Nightingale was one of its many supporters and spoke highly of the hospital proclaiming it to be the best designed in Europe. From the turn of the 20th century progress was rapid and by the beginning of the NHS in 1948 the treatment and care offered by our hospital was second to none.

Manchester's former children's hospitals, Royal Manchester Children's Hospital and Booth Hall Children's Hospital were previously located in Pendlebury and Blackley. Both hospitals have recently relocated to the city centre where they now enjoy a state-of-the-art facility.

Royal Manchester Children's Hospital is now the largest single-site children's hospital in the UK and provides care for over 185,000 children and young people each year.

The work we do now...

Royal Manchester Children's Hospital is a centre of excellence for paediatric care and offers specialist treatment for children across the region from as far north as Cumbria, down to Stoke and across to North Wales. We have a national reputation for providing the best care in a variety of specialties including:

  • Bone Marrow Transplantation

    Royal Manchester Children's Hospital has the main Bone Marrow Transplant Unit for metabolic disease outside London. The hospital boasts the first paediatric accredited unit in the UK. A bone marrow transplant can halt deterioration in some genetically inherited metabolic conditions which could otherwise be fatal.

The unit has 17 beds for patients ranging from newborn babies to 16-year-old teenagers. The hospital treats very sick children form other referring hospitals.
