Our Vision

Together we aim to build a new high quality and sustainable civic campus where people will want to get well, learn and work.

It will provide a focal point for the community, with integrated health and social care facilities, high-quality new homes, and access to better education and training alongside more inviting public open spaces.

This transformational development will effect generational change for the North Manchester community, creating new jobs, promoting healthy lifestyles, developing skills and contributing to a zero-carbon environment for the benefit of the local neighbourhood and beyond.

Our proposals include:

  • A new acute hospital providing modern, best-in-class healthcare facilities, embracing integration, innovation and technology.
  • A modern mental health hospital offering a high quality and effective care environment (New Park House development).
  • A wellbeing hub to deliver integrated community-based care and wellbeing services, responding to the specific needs of the local population. This will become a destination for the local community through the variety of services it offers, combined with meeting spaces and a community café.
  • An education hub to support training for healthcare staff and to maximise employment opportunities for local community.
  • A new residential community focused on keeping people well at home. The housing will be diverse and could include key worker accommodation, social housing, stepdown care, and extra care.
  • New high-quality commercial space with a focus on healthy ageing and providing flexible accommodation suited to companies in different stages of evolution. This space will support and inspire innovation and enable businesses to locate and expand in North Manchester, benefiting local employment.
  • A village green. This will be a high quality outdoor space, acting as a focal point for the Campus, and a vital connection to the local neighbourhood.

This is an exciting step forwards for the future of North Manchester General Hospital.  We look forward to working with you to develop plans for the regeneration of the site and to improve the health of the communities we serve.

Why do we need to redevelop the hospital site?

The current NMGH site is in need of radical redesign and investment to enable high quality services and a modern, joined up and integrated care system. Independent assessments have identified that over 70% of the existing estate is in desperate need of rebuilding.

NMGH is vitally important as the principal healthcare facility for North Manchester. It also provides employment to over 2,000 people, many of whom live locally. It is located at the heart of the community of Crumpsall. As part of the redevelopment there is an opportunity to broaden the use of the site to benefit its local community and people across North Manchester.

The redevelopment of the hospital is a key part of growing the North Manchester economy and meeting many of the strategic objectives of the city. This project contributes to the wider regeneration of North Manchester, with links to existing initiatives such as the Abraham Moss Centre and the Northern Gateway residential development and renewal programme.

The potential local and city-wide benefits of the redevelopment are:

What happens next?

Partners including Manchester City Council (MCC), Manchester Health and Care Commissioning (MHCC), Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) and Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMH) are all collaborating to deliver this exciting vision for a once in a generation change.

MFT is leading a process with partner organisations to develop a draft Strategic Regeneration Framework or SRF. The SRF is a critical document which will set out the blueprint for the redevelopment of the hospital site over the next 10-15 years. It will reflect the vision and aspirations for the site, and the aim is to share the draft SRF with the MCC Executive Committee as a draft in November 2020.
