Wards moving at Southport Hospital
SOUTHPORT and Formby District General
Hospital began the move of 3 Wards within the Town Lane building. The moves bring acute, medical and surgical
care wards into one place. Each ward will keep its telephone numbers from their
original locations. The 3 Wards moving will be:-
► The Stroke Ward 10b is moving to Ward 15b.
Surgical Ward 15b moves to Ward 11a.
Surgical Ward 11a moves to Ward 10b and becomes the Surgical Assessment Unit.
The moves are part of the Trust's ₤250,000 "Safe at all Times" project
which aims to make the best use possible of buildings and staff. The work, at
Southport, also includes creation of a clinical communications hub which will
support bed management and give oversight of activity across the Hospital to
underpin safe care.
Therese Patten, Chief Operating Officer, said:- "Having patients in the
right place at the right time is a key factor in giving them the best possible
experience while in our care. I want to thank all the staff who have worked so
hard to make these changes happen as well as patients and their families for
their patience this week."
