“This is the biggest investment at Arrowe Park Hospital since it was built almost 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 Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to deliver a new urgent treatment centre that will provide an enhanced environment for patients and visitors.”
