This page explains how we will use the money that has been raised.
In 2018 the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital will open its doors.
The state-of-the-art hospital will be accessible, attractive and easy to navigate and patients will be treated in surroundings which are modern, bright and spacious.
We want to fundamentally change the hospital experience and set new standards of care within the NHS. When we consulted our local community people liked the idea of every patient having a single bedroom with en suite facilities. People also asked for communal areas so that patients and friends and family can meet and chat. This balance between privacy and the need to be with others made great sense so each patient will have their own room but also a range a community facilities so they can be with others.
The new Royal will also be a key part of the wider health strategy for Liverpool and beyond. It will help us to continue to address health needs in the city, which sadly has the third lowest life expectancy rate in the country.
The new hospital will enable our services and clinics to be more streamlined, efficient and flexible. All fixed equipment – from nurses call systems to imaging equipment such as scanners - will be brand new and the latest on the market.
We have big ambitions to set new standards of healthcare. The new Royal will deliver outstanding quality of care and give our patients and their families the very best therapeutic environment in which to get better.
