 Mayor of Liverpool experiences "breath taking" visit to the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital

THE Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson has attended an exclusive preview inside the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital. Mayor Anderson added:- "It's absolutely breath taking, it really is! I came to the topping out ceremony last Christmas and am excited to see how it has progressed since then. I am really looking forward to when the Hospital will be ready for occupation."

The Mayor also visited the inpatient wards on the 4th floor, and discussed the technology which will support patient safety in each of the patient rooms.

Visiting the critical care ward and theatres on the 2nd floor, the Mayor learned how state of the art technology will improve patient safety, dignity and privacy allowing nurses to monitor patients directly in each of their rooms.

Each in patient ward has a relaxation sitting area for patients and relatives to aid their recovery, something that isn't currently available in the existing Hospital.

Much work has also been dedicated to enhancing staff facilitates, including staff restrooms and staff changing facilities which are located on each floor.

The garden and courtyard facilities will provide much needed green space to enhance the health and wellbeing of patients. The tour also highlighted how the interior of the Hospital will display original artwork from artists and will house improved cafes and retail outlets.

Mayor Anderson said:- "I'm just absolutely amazed and overwhelmed with the scale and the size of the building. Seeing it for myself I can see how this facility will provide fantastic benefits to patients, staff and visitors."

1 of the most striking things that visitors to the Royal can expect is the bright and spacious atrium, the Mayor saw this 1st hand, as he was 1 of the 1st to walk through the new atrium, located at the heart of the new Royal.

Once open, the Royal Liverpool University Hospital will be the largest all single patient room Hospital, within the UK. The new Hospital will contain 646 beds, all in individual en-suite rooms, spread across 23 wards. There will be a 40 bed critical care unit and 18 operating theatres.

Mayor Anderson added:- "The new Royal Liverpool University Hospital is such an important development that's taking shape in our City; it will bring about world class healthcare for the people of our community and provide an essential partnership in innovation and advances in science and medical research."

Aidan Kehoe, chief executive of the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital added:- "The tour was a fantastic opportunity for the Mayor to visit the new Hospital and see for himself the hard work that is enabling the development to progress. We have worked tirelessly with our staff and Carillion to get this right for staff and patients, to ensure we are providing state of the art facilities and lead the way in supporting and treating patients with the best possible care. The Hospital forms part of the Health Campus situated in the Knowledge Quarter Liverpool which is a Mayoral Development Zone this is fast becoming one of Europe's leading innovation districts. The Mayor had the chance to see how much of an asset the new Hospital will be for the area and how it will bring about greater relationships with stakeholders and open up new opportunities for research and development in science and in health. Thanks to the Mayor, local MP's and Councillors for supporting the new Royal Liverpool Hospital development, the new Hospital will enable a significant advancement in healthcare in our City."
