Liverpool Women’s successful in securing £6.5m

Liverpool Women’s NHS FT has been successful in securing £6.5m capital financing.

The financing has been provided by the Department for Health and Social Care and will be used through 2021 to address clinical challenges at the organisation.
The funding will be used to purchase a new CT scanner and blood bank onsite, develop their colposcopy suite and invest in a surgical theatre robot, along with other associated estates works.

The trust submitted a capital finance bid earlier this year that was supported locally and by NHS England / Improvement.
Jenny Hannon, Director of Finance, said: “We are delighted to secure this capital support, particularly during these challenging times. It will deliver significant benefits to our patients and staff as well as the wider region by providing much needed diagnostic capacity within the Trust.”

“We look forward to progressing with our plans to make good use of this capital immediately with essential improvements to the hospital site, making our services even more safe and allowing us to provide an even higher quality of care.”
