MOC is part of Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) which was established on 1st October 2017 following the merger of Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT) and University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UHSM) to become one of the largest Foundation Trusts in the UK.

The trust is responsible for running a group of nine hospitals, across six separate sites, providing a wide range of services from comprehensive local general hospital and community care, through to highly specialised regional and national services.

MOC is recognised as a North West joint replacement and shoulder surgery centre. Since opening  in 2013, MOC has gained a reputation as a centre of excellence, for treating patients with excellent outcomes, low complication rates and high patient satisfaction.

Other subspecialties include young adult hip service, soft tissue, foot and ankle procedures, soft tissue tumours and hand procedures.

Our objective is to be a world leader in orthopaedic care using innovation, research and education to provide the highest quality experience for all our patients.  At MOC we are committed to minimising infection rates, other potential complications and the length of stay in hospital.

Here at MOC you will receive world class care with the latest techniques and technologies to help reduce pain and get you back to normal in the shortest time and safest way possible

The  ward consists of  20 bedded in-patient area and a 45 bedded day-case area.
