Saint Mary’s Hospital was founded in 1790 and, over the years, has successfully developed a wide range of world class medical services for women, babies and children as well as a comprehensive Genomics Centre and an internationally recognised teaching and research portfolio.

Our leading edge services are tailored both to meet the needs of the local population in Manchester and patients with complex medical conditions referred from other areas in the Greater Manchester conurbation, the North West and beyond.
