Ulster Hospital

Referral/Teaching Hospital | Belfast, United Kingdom

Hospital description

Ulster Hospital is a busy hospital on the outskirts of Belfast and is associated with Queen’s University, Belfast. Sometimes referred to as the Ulster, the hospital has existed since 1872 and is a teaching hospital in Dundonald, on the eastern side of Belfast. It serves the East Belfast, North Down, Ards and Castlereagh areas and provides acute services to 250,000. It is one of four regional cancer units in Northern Ireland.

The hospital was originally opened as a specialist hospital – the Ulster Hospital for Women and Sick Children in 1872 – and after several moves and a rebuild in Dundonald after severe damage during the Belfast Blitz, it was renamed the Ulster Hospital and became a more general facility.

The hospital became a teaching hospital in June 2011, and is now affiliated with Queen’s University, Belfast. It offers teaching for undergraduate medical programmes.
