Trauma and Orthopaedics has achieved surgical hub accreditation by the GIRFT programme, meaning Wrightington Hospital has been nationally recognised in a range of criteria for meeting top clinical and operational standards, and is a visible marker of excellent quality, as well as being the Greater Manchester hub for orthopaedics.
