Be A Liverpool 2018 Supercar Spotter!

A supercar has been given a neon makeover to celebrate the anniversary of Liverpool's European Capital of Culture title. An award winning BAC Mono motorcar has been emblazoned with the:- 'Liverpool 2018' branding, and anyone who spots it on the City's streets are encouraged to take a snap and send it via Twitter using '#spotthemono.'

The best shots will be in with the chance of winning a number of top prizes including:-

A hotel stay for 2 at a 4 star City Centre hotel.

An exclusive BAC Mono track day where you will experience just how powerful the supercar is.

The eye  catching design is a 1 off unique look for the world's 1st road legal, single seater production car which is manufactured in Liverpool. People will be able to spot it out and about over the next couple of weeks; so keep an eye on the Culture Liverpool social media channels for hints about where the supercar will be and when.

Neill Briggs, Director of Product Development and Co-Founder of Briggs Automotive Company said:- "The BAC Mono already serves as an ambassador for Liverpool across the world, and we're delighted to be part of the Liverpool 2018 celebrations with the brand emblazoned on the car's body. BAC is an ambitious and visionary company; traits we share with the City of Liverpool. We both look to push boundaries, build on our strong reputation and are known around the globe for being forward thinking and pioneering. We are proud that BAC is built in Liverpool and we are proud to be supporting this special anniversary year."

Liverpool's Deputy Mayor and Cabinet Member for Culture, Tourism and Events, Councillor Wendy Simon, said:- "We are always spreading the word about the fantastic cultural programme taking place this year and to have it loud and proud on a BAC Mono car really is the coming together of two incredibly successful brands. Its pink and yellow design is sure to attract attention, and photos can mean prizes, so we're encouraging people to get a snap of the vehicle, send it in to the Culture Liverpool team and be in with the chance of being our competition winners."

The BAC Mono 2018 branding was carried out by APM Customs.

Discharge Lounge at Southport Hospital Open

WORK is now complete on the new discharge and transfer lounge, which opened, on Monday, 16 July 2018, at Southport and District General Hospital. The new Unit will improve patient flow, relieving pressure on A&E, improving care and the overall patient experience.

Head of patient flow Hazel Irizar explains:- "This is part of a bigger project to completely overhaul our emergency care provision. The new Unit will free up space in accident and emergency, and provide a more comfortable experience for patients waiting to be discharged. The Unit has 3 beds and a side room, plus a seating area for up to 8 mobile patients. The next and final stage of works will begin shortly, and this will see A&E refurbished by autumn. Additional bays, additional staff and improved triage facilities to accelerate patient hand over from ambulance crews, will create a much improved experience and environment for both patients and staff."

Chief executive Silas Nicholls concludes:- "Improving the experience of care for patients attending Accident and Emergency has been a priority for us for some time. The new discharge lounge, along with our Clinical Decision Unit which opened earlier this year, and the planned A&E refurbishment, will vastly improve our performance and resilience."

Hours of opening:- Monday to Friday, from 8am to 6.30pm.
