Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Central Manchester University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT) runs eight hospitals in Manchester and Trafford: Manchester Royal Infirmary, Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, St Mary's Hospital, Manchester, Manchester Royal Eye Hospital and University Dental Hospital of Manchester in Manchester, and Trafford General Hospital, Altrincham Hospital and Stretford Memorial Hospital in Trafford.
The three Trafford hospitals run by Trafford Healthcare Trust were taken over by CMFT in 2012.
MRI, MREH, St Mary's and RMCH share a large site between Oxford Road and Upper Brook Street in Manchester, close to the Manchester Medical School (part of the University of Manchester) and Manchester Metropolitan University.
As the leading provider of tertiary and specialist healthcare services in Manchester, the Trust treats more than a million patients every year. On 1 April 2011, community services previously provided by the Primary Care Trust transferred to this Trust.
