Manchester Royal Infirmary Charity

The Work We Do

Manchester Royal Infirmary has been providing care for over 250 years having been founded in 1752. Back then, the MRI has just 12 beds. Now, it is a large teaching hospital for Manchester University’s Medical School and provides care to over 635,000 patients every year.

The hospital is a specialist regional centre for kidney and pancreas transplants, haematology and sickle cell disease. Our Heart Centre is a major provider of cardiac services in the region, specialising in cardiothoracic surgery and cardiology. Our Accident & Emergency Department sees around 145,000 patients each year.

Why We Need Your Help

The support that Manchester Royal Infirmary Charity provides helps to make a difficult time easier for patients at our hospital at what can be a very emotional and daunting time.

With your help, the charity supports projects which benefit our patients and their families, particularly when they have long or frequent stays in hospital.

We do this by focussing our fundraising efforts on three key areas – treatment, research and care. This can include the purchase of cutting edge equipment, funding pioneering medical research and creating a patient-friendly environment allowing our patients, and their families, to feel welcome and at ease during their time in hospital. But we can only do this with the help of our supporters. Please help us to make a difference and get involved today.
