The Huddersfield Royal Infirmary is a hospital situated in the English town of Huddersfield, part of Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust. It is situated in the suburb of Lindley and provides general services, emergency services and some specialist services.

The Huddersfield Royal Infirmary originally had its own School of Nursing. This has now been incorporated into a 'Virtual Ward' setting within the University of Huddersfield's School of Human and Health Resources.

It is the base for Huddersfield Pharmacy Specials, established in 1964, which produces mainly unlicensed medicines and bespoke creams and ointments, oral liquids, eye drops and injectables. It employed 53 staff.[1]

In April 2006, photovoltaic array panels were installed on the roof of the hospital building, providing it with a renewable source of electricity.[2]

The Trust decided in November 2014 to close its casualty department and Calderdale in order to focus emergency care in Huddersfield and planned care in Calderdale.[3]
