Overview

Huddersfield Royal Infirmary

Huddersfield Royal Infirmary is about three miles from Huddersfield town centre. The main hospital first opened its doors in 1965 and since then many millions have been invested in the site to modernise and extend it.The hospital offers a full range of day case, outpatient services and an accident and emergency department. It is also the specialist centre for emergency surgery, planned complex surgery. Recent major developments have included the opening of the family birth centre and investment in a £500,000 state-of-the-art CT (computerised tomography) scanner and suite. A full programme of bathroom refurbishment is also underway and work has started on a £3.5m state-of-the-art endsocopy unit. The Trust owns the Acre Mill site opposite Huddersfield Royal Infirmary and work has started to develop the site for non-clinical services, freeing valuable space on the main site for patient services.
