Phase Two of Wythenshawe Hospital’s Emergency Department ‘goes live’

The second phase of the new Emergency Department (ED) development at Wythenshawe Hospital has now opened to patients. The new Resuscitation (resus) area went live as part of phase two of the project.

The new six-bed area is situated across the corridor from the existing resus in a newly refurbished area. Overall, this £17million expansion project is doubling the size of Wythenshawe Hospital’s ED unit, ensuring it can continue to provide high quality emergency care for patients across South Manchester, Trafford and beyond. The first part of the development opened to patients in May.
