Saint Mary’s Hospital was founded in 1790 and, over the years, has successfully developed a wide range of expert medical services for women and babies. Saint Mary’s is the North West’s major centre for Genetic Medicine and has an internationally recognised teaching and research portfolio.

Today, more than 2,000 staff work throughout our dedicated Oxford Road hospital, as well as managed clinical services at Wythenshawe Hospital, Trafford General Hospital and North Manchester General Hospital, to deliver the highest standard of care in obstetrics, maternity, neonatal intensive care, gynaecology, genomics and sexual assault referral.

Each year, Saint Mary’s teams deliver over 13,000 babies, carry out 1,400 surgical procedures, support 120,000 outpatient and antenatal appointments and provide intensive care for 2,600 sick newborn babies.

They also provide specialist support to over 3,000 people every year who have experienced rape or sexual assault. The Sexual Assault Referral Centre was the first of its kind in the UK and its expert team take a lead role in developing training for new SARCs throughout the country.

As a teaching centre, Saint Mary’s is committed to the teaching of medical staff and has close links with the University of Manchester Medical School. The research activity is extensive, ranging from fertility, pregnancy complications and stillbirth prevention to genetic disorders and gynaecological cancers.
