The new Altrincham Hospital development on Railway Street will provide a modern, high quality, purpose-built environment that will replace the existing Victorian hospital on Market Street.
All existing services, including the minor injuries unit, will transfer to the new facility which will also offer a number of new and expanded services.
Maintenance renal dialysis is a major new service for Altrincham and there will be a significant expansion in the number and range of eye clinics provided by experts from Manchester Royal Eye Hospital. The new Altrincham Hospital is due to open in two stages, with the renal dialysis unit opening on 30th March 2015, and the rest of the hospital on 27th April 2015.
Please note: Trafford General's A&E department is now an Urgent Care Centre, providing treatment for adults and children who have a need for care that is not life-threatening.
The new Urgent Care Centre works much in the same way as the previous A&E department and can be visited for the treatment of a wide range of conditions from minor injuries and illnesses to suspected fractures and wounds.
The Urgent Care Centre is open daily from 8.00am - midnight and is staffed by a highly skilled team of Accident and Emergency doctors and nurses.
It provides treatment for adults and children who have a need for care that is not life-threatening but where prompt help, care or advice is required. For more information on the changes to services at Trafford General, please click here.
