Contractor begins work on new facility at Arrowe Park Hospital, Wirral
The new facility will help to improve care given to patients
Tilbury Douglas has started construction of the new Urgent and Emergency Care facility at Arrowe Park Hospital on behalf of Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
The facility is designed to create an efficient patient flow, with those attending either the emergency department or the urgent treatment centre entering through a single point, which will ensure patients are provided with the right care, in the right place, at the right time.
Janelle Holmes, trust chief executive, said: “The new facility will completely transform Wirral’s only emergency department and also the provision of urgent care for local people.
“This is the biggest investment at Arrowe Park Hospital since it was built over 40 years ago and shows our commitment to enhancing the care we provide to those who are in most urgent need.”
Phil Shaw, divisional director for the North West at Tilbury Douglas, added: “Utilising our extensive experience within the healthcare sector, we are looking forward to working with the trust to deliver a new urgent treatment centre that will provide an enhanced environment for patients and visitors.”
The Tilbury Douglas team has hosted four ‘Meet the Buyer’ events with Wirral Chamber and Constructionline to provide opportunities for local businesses to get involved in the project.
