STOP PRESS! View the news and updates section below for news on the proposals to redesign services at Trafford General Hospital...
The NHS was born in Trafford more than 60 years ago. But it faces a new challenge for the next 60 years. Local patients have the right to receive the highest quality, safest healthcare close to their homes (if not in their own homes), and to be treated by the most experienced healthcare professionals possible, so they get the best outcomes. But this is why there is a dilemma for local clinicians in Trafford, and why Trafford needs a new health deal.
Clinicians have to make difficult decisions about how healthcare will be provided across Trafford in the future, to ensure that all local residents can have equal access to the very best, safest medical care in the future.
On this website you can find out more about why things need to change and find out how local health services work now. You can also read more detail about the three main areas in the plan for change as detailed above, and watch a film below that outlines the proposal.
The consultation has now closed.
