Our Story

From a medical student in a lecture hall, to four health centres across Greater Manchester serving over 12,000 patients, Hope Citadel has come a long way in 6 years.

Hope Citadel is all about people; from the patients we serve, to the teams who make it happen every day of the week. When people get together there is usually a story to tell. Below are some of the highlights and events that have shaped Hope Citadel Healthcare to be the team and story it is today.
