Where can I receive hospitalised treatment?

Whiston Hospital (L35 5DR), St Helens Hospital (WA9 3DA) and Newton Community Hospital (WA12 8RB) are the NHS hospitals in the St Helens borough – please click on the relevant hospital to find out what departments and services are available. Your GP will usually refer you to the most appropriate department and hospital if you require specialist treatment or further assessment.

Fairfield Independent Hospital is an independent charity providing services for NHS patients and quick access to private medical care (i.e. you need to pay) for people without medical insurance.

You have the right to choose to go to any hospital or facility in the country – this choice is usually made by location (i.e. the closest to you), but you can also find out more about a hospital’s reputation, performance or patient opinion by visiting the NHS Choices website and entering your postcode into the ‘Health Services near you’ box.
