The Hospital

Huddersfield Royal Infirmary
Huddersfield Royal Infirmary

Huddersfield Royal Infirmary is about three miles from Huddersfield town centre. The main hospital first opened its doors in 1965 and since then many millions are being invested in the site to modernise and extend it.

The hospital offers a full range of day case and outpatient services and an accident and emergency department. It is also the specialist centre for emergency surgery, planned complex surgery and emergency paediatric surgery for the people of Huddersfield and Calderdale.

Recent major developments have included the opening of a £3.8 million endoscopy unit which has been rated amongst the best in the country and a new £380K new surgery outpatients department.

The Infirmary is home to the Huddersfield Family Birth Centre where women with uncomplicated pregnancies can choose to give birth in a warm and friendly, non-medical setting.

Extra barriered car parking spaces have recently been created at the hospital for patients, visitors and staff. This work was carried out alongside a huge works programme to replace the old coal-fired-boiler with a gas-fired system to provide cleaner and greener heating for the hospital into the 21st century.

The Trust owns the Acre Mill site opposite Huddersfield Royal Infirmary and work has started to develop the site for non-clinical services, freeing up valuable space on the main hospital site for patient services.  Extra parking has also been created on this site for staff, visitors and patients.
