Welcome to our Trust
Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust provides healthcare in hospital and the community to 258,000 people across Southport, Formby and West Lancashire.
We are an “integrated care organisation” (ICO) delivering care in hospital and the community and employ 3,472 staff.
Acute care is provided at Southport and Formby District General Hospital and Ormskirk and District General Hospital. This includes adults’ and children’s accident and emergency services, intensive care and a range of medical and surgical specialities. Women’s and children’s services, including maternity, are provided at Ormskirk hospital.
In addition, the Trust is responsible for many adult community health services, mainly in north Sefton and West Lancashire, which are provided in health centres, clinics and at patients’ homes.
The North West Regional Spinal Injuries Centre at Southport hospital provides specialist care for spinal patients from across the North West, North Wales and the Isle of Man.
The Trust also provides sexual health services for the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton.
Given local demographic forecasts, we believe our integrated care model will provide the optimum way to improve patient outcomes.
