Change of Legal Body for EMQN

1 year ago

The legal entity for EMQN  (our host organisation) changed on the 1st October 2017 from “Central Manchester University Hospital’s NHS Foundation Trust” to “Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust”.

Why did it change?

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) was formed following the merger of Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT) and University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UHSM). The change created a new, city-wide hospital Trust which will provide much better, safer, more consistent hospital care that’s fit for the future for people living in the City of Manchester, Trafford, and the wider communities it serves.

Will these changes affect me?

Not really – there should be very little change. We will still provide you with an excellent EQA service from the same location in Manchester. The only change for our user swill be that our invoicing address will change to reflect the new hospital name. We have also updated our website to reflect this (see here).
