Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is an NHS Foundation Trust located in the suburb of Fazakerley; in the city of Liverpool, England. It was formerly known as University Hospital Aintree NHS Trust and became a Foundation Trust in 2006.
The Trust consists of Aintree University Hospital (Known locally as Fazakerley Hospital, founded in 1898) but does not include The Walton Centre for Neurology and Neurosurgery, which since 1998 is now located on the same site; having originally provided services from the since demolished Walton Hospital on Rice Lane in Walton, Liverpool. In 2009, the Care Quality Commission rated the trust "Good" for the quality of its services and "Excellent" for the quality of its financial management.
In December 2013 the Trust was one of thirteen hospital trusts named by Dr Foster Intelligence as having higher than expected higher mortality indicator scores for the period April 2012 to March 2013 in their Hospital Guide 2013. The same report highlighted that the hospital’s HSMR mortality indicator was better than expected. The hospital has said that both indicators need to be considered to give a rounded picture and that a mortality reduction programme is underway.
Aintree was named "Large Employer of the Year" in the regional finals of the 2013 National Apprenticeship Awards. The hospital was also listed in the 2013 Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers list, which is produced by the National Apprenticeship Service and City & Guilds.
Aintree’s staff flu immunisation campaign for 2013-14 was the best in the country. More than 83% of frontline staff had the flu jab before the campaign officially closed on 31 January 2014, the highest figure in the country.
