Plans for new Liverpool Hospital underway

  • Comment
Nurses have been directly involved in the planning of departments for a new hospital in Liverpool.

The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust is proposing a £477m project developing a new hospital to replace the Royal Liverpool University Hospital on its existing site.

Having had outline planning with the City Council, the development will now undergo a 14 week consideration period led by Liverpool PCT.

Planning has been led by a design group of 40 senior clinicians. Over 400 hospital staff have been involved in planning their departments in the new hospital. Patients have also been involved in the planning.

Plans for the hospital include more single rooms with ensuite facilities and more private rooms for each ward.

The project is part of a wider investment, with up to £100 million being invested by Liverpool PCT in new and improved community health facilities. The plan also involves further development of Broadgreen Hospital as a centre for elective treatment, with the Royal focusing on specialist and emergency care.
