New home for Merseyside Ambulance staff

NORTH West Ambulance Service staff currently based at Elm House, Anfield, are to relocate 8 miles up the road, to Speke, into a brand new, state of the art property. The Trust purchased, Estuary Point for ₤2.9m and has begun planning to the new location on Liverpool International Business Park which will accommodate the 999 emergency control room as well as corporate services and new training facilities.  The current area office, on Belmont Grove, Liverpool, was built in the early 19th century as a family home, spent some time as part of the Belmont Workhouse and then in 1979 became the headquarters for the then Mersey Metropolitan Ambulance Service.

Director of Finance, Tracy Ellery comments:- "The Trust has been searching for a suitable property for its Merseyside staff for some time as we are well aware that Elm House is no longer fit for purpose. This is a substantial investment for the Trust and fully establishes our position in Merseyside, retaining jobs in Liverpool and also importantly providing the opportunity for expansion, particularly for our 999 emergency control centre. We are now consulting with the staff regarding Estuary Point's configuration and have been arranging site visits for those staff that will be based there. The feedback we have received is extremely positive. The Trust is very proud of its commitment to minimising its impact on the environment and this was a key factor in selecting a property to purchase. Compared to Elm House, Estuary Point will enable us to make impactful savings on our energy costs."

Estuary Point is a new build property comprising of 40,000sq ft of office space over 3 floors. It is located in the centre of the business park with views over the Speke Garston Coastal Reserve and the River Mersey. Timescales have yet to be fully agreed, but it is hoped that the building will be fully functional by late summer 2018.
