Royal Liverpool University Hospital unveils state of the art training centre in North West

ROYAL Liverpool University Hospital has unveiled a state of the art training laboratory and regional centre of excellence. The site will provide training for more than 1,000 hospital and laboratory staff a year, from across the North West.

The centre, which is part of Liverpool Clinical Laboratories, was redeveloped following a grant from Roche Diagnostics, as part of its ongoing commitment to training and excellence in diagnostics.

Staff will be trained on the latest diagnostic innovations and technologies that are used at the point of care within the hospital, to provide high quality care for patients. These tests help doctors and nurses to better care for patients, who are often critically ill, by closely monitoring their condition and detecting the early signs of deterioration.

The Royal Liverpool University Hospital is the largest hospital in Merseyside and Cheshire, and provides emergency, general and specialist treatment to over 750,000 people a year across the North West.

The centre was opened by Christopher Parker, Managing Director of Roche Diagnostics UK and Ireland, to an audience of 50 people.

Jane Mills, Chief Operating Officer, Liverpool Clinical Laboratories, said:- "It is often the unsung hero of medicine but up to 70% of clinical decision making is based on diagnostic testing. Ensuring doctors have access to accurate test results is an essential component of delivering the highest quality care for our patients."

Christopher Parker, Managing Director of Roche Diagnostics UK and Ireland, said:- "Roche is committed to excellence in diagnostic testing no matter where it is carried out. We are focused on going beyond the development of the latest product innovations to also ensuring that patients have timely access to the safest and most accurate testing possible."

Renewables generate more than a quarter of UK electricity

RENEWABLEUK is highlighting new statistics which show the increasingly fundamental role that renewable energy is playing in generating electricity for British homes, offices and factories; despite mixed messages from Government on whether it supports clean energy.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change has just published statistics covering the second quarter of 2015, showing that from April to June renewables generated 25.3% of UK electricity. 42% of this came from onshore and offshore wind. Wind generated 10.7% of the country's needs.

For the first time in a quarterly period, renewables beat coal which generated 20.5%. Renewables also outperformed nuclear which provided 21.5%. DECC said this was due to higher wind speeds and increased capacity, with generation increasing by 61.5% onshore and 70.4% offshore compared to Q2 2014. Overall renewable electricity generation increased by 51.4% compared to the same quarter last year. Gas provided 30%.

RenewableUK's Chief Executive Maria McCaffery said:- "Renewables have now become Britain's second largest source of electricity, generating more than a quarter of our needs. The new statistics show that Britain is relying increasingly on dependable renewable sources to keep the country powered up, with onshore and offshore wind playing the leading roles in our clean energy mix. As the transition to clean electricity continues apace, we'd welcome clearer signals from Government that it's backing the installation of vital new projects. So far, we've had a series of disappointing announcements from Ministers since May which unfortunately betray a lack of positive ambition at the heart of Government. If Ministers want to see good statistics like we've had today continuing into the years ahead, they have to knuckle down, listen to the high level of public support we enjoy, and start making positive announcements on wind, wave and tidal energy."
