About Us

We run Stepping Hill Hospital, and other specialist centres, as well as community health services for Stockport.

Our stroke services have been officially ranked as the best in England – and urology and orthopaedic  services at Stepping Hill Hospital are highly-rated nationally.

Stepping Hill Hospital first opened in 1905 and was a military hospital during the first World War. We now employ over 5,000 staff and were one of the first NHS trusts in the country to achieve foundation trust status in 2004.

We are a specialist `hub` centre for emergency and high risk general surgery, one of only four in Greater Manchester and covering the South East sector of our region.

Overall responsibility for delivering services rests with the Board of Directors. We are fully committed to being transparent and implementing the principles of Being Open and Honest.

As a Foundation Trust we also have a Board of Governors who are the voice of the local community, the majority of whom are elected from our public membership
