Your health should be your top priority and taking care of yourself is important. Unfortunately, there are times when you will need to utilise medical care from the NHS. Going to a hospital with substandard care can result in you needing to make a medical negligence claim. Here are some of the best hospitals in Cheshire so you can recuperate in peace.
Macclesfield District General Hospital
Macclesfield District General Hospital is located just off the A537 and offers plenty of public transport links which makes getting there simple.
Whether you are an inpatient or an outpatient, your stay will be surrounded by caring, compassionate staff. Macclesfield has almost every service you could think of, from paediatrics to dementia care. There is also an Accident and Emergency Department should you need it.
Although their maternity unit had to shut down due to COVID-19, it has since been reopened and has been welcoming babies into the world again since June 2023.
Warrington Hospital is part of the Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals group and offers a range of medical services. A hospital building has stood on this site since the late 1800s, and the Kendrick Wing is the only remaining part of the original building.
Since the 1800s there have been a number of updates to form Warrington Hospital the way it is now. Its A&E department sees over 100,000 patients every year, making it a busy place to work. As well as a dedicated trauma unit, there are specialist stroke, cardiac and surgical units.
Leighton Hospital, Crewe
Leighton Hospital is home to the Cheshire NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme which tests healthy individuals with no symptoms for bowel cancer. Detecting it early can help to increase the chance of survival but also keep treatments less invasive.
There is also an Eye Care Centre at Leighton Hospital which is home to a number of optical specialists. This means that whatever your eye-related issue, there will be a skilled team to test, diagnose and help you manage it.
The Nightingale Building, formerly known as Halton General Hospital, is a surgery-focused building. As there is no emergency department, routine and scheduled appointments are often on time and rarely cancelled. This means you can be confident should you need surgery that it will happen when planned.
Just across from the main entrance to the hospital is a dedicated orthopaedic surgery building called The Captain Sir Tom Moore Building. This was originally opened in 2006 for a private healthcare provider but was acquired by the NHS in 2013 for public services. Here they perform surgery for hip replacements, sports injuries and other bone-related injuries. This is a service that the trust is very proud to offer.
