Hospitals

Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust was formed in 1999 following the merger of acute hospital services in Southport, Formby and West Lancashire. The Trust is made up of two hospitals eight miles apart, Ormskirk and District General Hospital and Southport and Formby District General Hospital. They provide healthcare to a population of around 260,000 people. We currently have 518 inpatient beds, employ around 2,900 staff and see more than 390,000 patients a year. Since April 2011 the Trust became responsible for many community healthcare services for adults in Southport, Formby and West Lancashire We also hosts the North West Regional Spinal Injuries Centre whose catchment area covers Cumbria, North Wales and the Isle of Man as well as the Cheshire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester area. Southport is a coastal resort and as such attracts more than 5m visitors, placing a seasonal demand on healthcare. Together with Formby, the area has one of the highest proportions of older people in the country and there are many residential and nursing homes. It is also socially and economically diverse with areas of both relatively high income and significant deprivation. Much of West Lancashire is rural with the largest concentration of population being in Ormskirk and Skelmersdale. There are some of the most deprived wards in the country in West Lancashire. The semi-rural geography places emphasis on access to healthcare and the high emphasis on agriculture attracts a significant number of migrant workers.
