We play a significant role in improving Liverpool’s physical, social, and economic health, and the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital is a vital part of this.
Located in the city centre, it is a specialist centre for nephrology, renal transplantation, nuclear medicine, haematology, lithotripsy, dermatology, urology and dental services.
The state-of the-art hospital is the biggest in the country to provide inpatients with 100% single en-suite bedrooms, improving patient experience, safety and enhanced recovery.
Its High Consequences Infectious Disease (HCID) unit, one of five in England, was critical in the country’s initial response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is also a national centre for ocular oncology (eye cancer) and a regional centre for pancreatic, urological, ocular, testicular, anal, and oesophago-gastric cancers, specialist palliative care, specialist radiology and specialist pathology and chemotherapy services.
Each year we provide a large number of placements for student doctors, dentists, nurses and allied health professionals who benefit from the expertise and experience of some of the most skilled clinicians in the country.
