North West Heart Centre
0161 291 4601


The Northwest Heart Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital provides specialist cardiac and thoracic surgical services to a regional population of 3.2 million people. The Centre, which opened in spring 2008, is the first in the North to offer cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI), and will scan thousands of NHS patients every year. It is part of a £22m expansion and improvement programme of the unit to enhance the facilities and
services provided to patients.

A new 26-bed critical care ward has replaced the previous cardiothoracic Intensive Care and High Dependency Units. All outpatients’ appointments now take place in a new outpatients unit with 20 consulting rooms and an integrated cardiac diagnostic suite.

Wythenshawe Hospital has a long history of collecting and analysing surgical data, and was one of the first hospitals to publish cardiac survival rates. Surgeons at the hospital played a key role in the move to publicise cardiac survival rates by the Healthcare Commission.

Our team is dedicated to deliver the very best quality care for you and your family. Our experts make your safety and experience their top priority.
