Brief description of location
Fairfield Independent Hospital is an independent charitable organisation, and has been one of the North West’s leading independent healthcare providers for 43 years. It is a not for profit organisation, which means that any profits made are invested into health and care services, in order to improve our facilities and services.
All patients are accommodated in a single room with en suite facilities. Two rooms accommodate twin beds in order that a carer can stay with their relative/patient or the parents of a young adult can stay.
The hospital also provides disabled access and facilities and hearing impairment loops for the hard of hearing. We can offer patient information in large print for the visually impaired. The hospital also has access to interpreter services for both inpatients and outpatients.
