Carillion update on the new Royal with chief executive Aidan Kehoe

Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust chief executive Aidan Kehoe has released an update on the status of the new Royal.

The new Royal is currently delayed due to the liquidation of construction firm Carillion.

In the statement, recorded in the new Royal itself and which can be watched in full above, Mr Kehoe says:

"At this stage the preferred option for the Hospital Company (Liverpool) is to work with the existing sub-contractors and Carillion staff who have been working on the scheme to ensure continuity in the completion of the hospital. That involves complex discussions with the sub-contractors to ensure we can get them onsite as early as possible."

Mr Kehoe goes on to say:

"We remain 100% assured that the hospital will be completed and we will give the people of Liverpool a fantastic facility that they will all be proud of in the years to come."
