We are one of the busiest university teaching hospital trusts in North West England. We manage three hospitals based on two sites: the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Liverpool University Dental Hospital and Broadgreen Hospital.

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.

As one of the largest employers in the city, we employ over 5,500 staff as well as staff in services such as catering. Our annual budget is over £430 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 have the largest Emergency Department in the city and we are a Major Trauma Centre, part of the Major Trauma Centre Collaborative for Merseyside and Cheshire.

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 are building a new Royal Liverpool University Hospital on the same site as the existing Royal and Dental hospitals. The new Royal will transform healthcare in the city and is currently the single biggest regeneration project in Liverpool. To help us go beyond even the NHS promise of care, we've launched R Charity £10m Appeal for the new Royal. This will allow us to invest in the latest hi-tech equipment plus outstanding comforts and conveniences for our patients and their families. Through this, we will create a world-class hospital for Merseyside.
