Welcome to HPB (hepatobiliary and pancreatic) services at Manchester Royal Infirmary. The hepatobiliary system refers to the liver, gall bladder and bile ducts and how they work together.

We are the designated Regional Pancreatic Centre (in conjunction with our NMG colleagues), and are the largest most specialised HPB units in the region, treating patients from Manchester and surrounding areas.

We are a tertiary referral centre, and a nationally recognised centre of excellence for pancreatic cancer.

Many patients with a hepatobiliary problem require endoscopic ultrasound or ERCP, or others may require procedures involving X-ray.

If you need to be admitted for a procedure this will usually be to AM3 or AM4 (the gastroenterology wards) or the surgical ward.
