Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) was established in October 2017 as a result of the merger of the hospital trusts of Central and South Manchester. In April 2021, MFT also became responsible for the North Manchester General Hospital.
MFT is one of the largest acute trusts in the UK and employs over 20,000 staff across its hospitals and community services. Those of its hospitals that form the Oxford Road campus are the Manchester Royal Infirmary, St Mary’s Hospital, the Royal Eye Hospital, the University Dental Hospital, and the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
The MFT hosts one of only a small number of nationally designated Biomedical Research Centres. It also forms part of the Manchester Academic Health Science Centre, Health Innovation Manchester and the Greater Manchester Clinical Research Network. It is one of the leading research and teaching Trusts across the NHS and is recognised internationally for its work.
Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust works closely with Manchester City Council and other stakeholders to promote the economic and health regeneration of the city, being a key component of the ground-breaking Health and Social Care Partnership, established as a result of the devolution deal for Greater Manchester in 2016.
The MFT has worked with Bruntwood to bring the exciting and pioneering CityLabs concept to fruition, which is a collaboration of health, academic and commercial partners, creating a world-class hub for health innovation and precision medicine in the heart of its clinical campus on the Oxford Road Corridor.
