Manchester Orthopaedic Centre

MEOC ward area

The Manchester Orthopaedic Centre opened in November 2013 at Trafford General. The new centre brings together specialist orthopaedic expertise from both Trafford General and Manchester Royal Infirmary.

We provide planned day-case and in-patient surgery for patients from Trafford and Manchester in modern purpose-built facilities. Joint replacements including hips, elbows, knees, and shoulders are carried out at the centre and are supported by an extended therapy service which aims to see patients within 24 hours following treatment.

The Centre's ward consists of a 20 bedded in-patient area and a 25 bedded day-case area.

Entrance to the ward can be found by entering the hospital at entrance 1 (the clock tower entrance) and following directions for ward 12 (MOC) or entrance 6 Monday to Friday and follow signs to ward 12 entrance A.

Opening hours

The day case area is open 7am - 8.30pm, Monday to Friday.

The in-patient area is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The day case area is also used as an admissions area for those patients that will need to remain in hospital overnight or longer following their procedure.

Single sex accommodation is provided for all patients on the day case and in-patient area of ward 12.

Telephone number 0161 746 2414 (Monday to Friday 07:00- 20:30) or 0161 746 2110.
