What we do

We manage three hospitals based on two sites: the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Liverpool University Dental Hospital and Broadgreen Hospital. Our hospitals have often been at the forefront of medical breakthroughs during our long history at the heart of the city.

We are the major adult university teaching hospitals for Merseyside and Cheshire; we provide general hospital services to the adult population of Liverpool. We also provide a range of specialist health services, including cancer services for Merseyside, Cheshire and beyond. We are also a centre for clinical research and lead teaching and training in a variety of health professions.

We provide a comprehensive range of specialist services to 750,000 people each year within a total catchment population of more than two million people in Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales, the Isle of Man and beyond. In the past year, we cared for over 90,000 people in our emergency department, around 95,000 day case and inpatients and over 587,000 outpatient appointments.

As one of the largest employers in the city, we employ over 6,000 staff as well as staff in outsourced services. Our annual budget is over £500 million. Many of our services are highly regarded both nationally and internationally. These include ophthalmology, pancreatic surgery, gastroenterology, pathology, vascular surgery and interventional radiology. We are a specialist centre for nephrology, renal transplantation, nuclear medicine, haematology, lithotripsy, dermatology, urology and dental services.

We are building a new Royal Liverpool University Hospital on the same site as the existing Royal and Dental hospitals
