Welcome to the MRI Theatres and Decontamination Services
Department. Here you will find information about who we are
and how we support the surgical services in Manchester Royal
Our main Theatre suite has 12 theatres including a 24 hour
Emergency Theatre and provides a service for our major surgical
lists. In addition to the main theatre suite we have six
theatres in our Elective Treatment Centre which provides a service
for patients having operations typically requiring a short length

Hybrid Theatres within the Elective Treatment Suite.
We provide both an elective & emergency service for the

- Renal Transplantation
- Vascular surgery
- Ear Nose and Throat and Maxillo Facial surgery
- Cardiac Surgery
Each of our Theatre areas has an adjoining recovery area
in which we can care for patients immediately following their
surgery. In addition, in the enhanced recovery unit we provide care
for patients who require additional observation
immediately after surgery but do not require to go to the
High Dependency Unit.
Our emergency theatre team is also supported by our
Emergency Anaesthetic Practitioners who support the anaesthesists
working with critically ill patients on the wards and
attending emergencies across the hospital site.
We also have a team of nurses who form part of the North
West Organ Retrieval Service going to hospitals across the North
West to assist with kidney and liver transplantation.
All of our theatres are supported by our Decontamination Services
Department which is based on the Central Manchester Oxford Road
campus. The Decontamination Services Department support the
