Overview

The main entrance to Warrington Hospital

Warrington Hospital is a leading district general hospital. It focuses on emergency and urgent care and has all the back up services required to treat patients with a range of complex medical and surgical conditions.

The hospital has provides a full range of expert inpatient and outpatient services. It has low infection numbers and short waiting times for most specialties.

Warrington Hospital is home to Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust's accident and emergency department. The trust's maternity services are also based at the hospital and 3,200 babies are born at Warrington each year.

If your surgery or care might require extra support or a high level of specialist care it is likely to be carried out at Warrington.

The hospital is also home to specialist critical care, stroke, cardiac and surgical units - our £7million critical care unit is one of the best equipped in the region. Europe's first 128 slice CT scanner opened in January 2012 and our labour ward was completely refrubished with en-suite facilities in 2013.

Other new developments include a state of the art endoscopy unit and eye surgery facilities, alongside a new urgent care centre facility and upgraded A&E department.

The majority of wards in the hospital have been extensively refurbished over the last few years to ensure that the facilities you use match the high standard of care that our expert and caring staff across the hospital provide.

Warrington hospital is easily accessible, located to the north of Warrington town centre which is close to the M6, M62 and M56 motorways. It is also well served by local public transport networks.
