About Us


Welcome to Stockport NHS Foundation Trust

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

You can find telephone details of wards,  our services and view our main hospitals and community centres.

Our urologyorthopaedic and stroke services at Stepping Hill Hospital are highly-rated nationally. Explore a selection of our services by viewing our virtual tours.

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 (mostly abdominal), one of only four in Greater Manchester, for the South East sector.

We are also in the Stockport Together partnership to integrate local health and social care services and deliver more care closer to people’s homes.

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
