In 2020, the Trust began piloting robotic assisted surgery within its Gynaecology service. The pilot aimed to bring access to the latest technology to the women of Liverpool, reducing risk, length of hospital stay and improving outcomes, as well as attracting the best clinicians to work in our service. The pilot was a resounding success and welcomed by our patients, and earlier this year the Trust purchased the theatre robot, securing the long-term future of the service. Patients have really welcomed this service with positive feedback since the Trust began delivering it.
Liverpool Women’s is pleased to share details of the recently established Crown Street Enhancements Programme which through investment and development aims to increase the support services we can provide on our current hospital site, benefitting both patients and staff.
In late 2020, the Trust was successful in securing £6.5m of capital financing, to address some of the clinical challenges we face on the current Liverpool Women’s site. The Trust’s long-term preferred plan of re-locating and building a new Liverpool Women’s Hospital - adjoined to other adult acute services in the city - remains the same. However, whilst Liverpool Women’s remains at its current home it is important that its services and facilities continue to be developed to deliver the best and safest care possible as well as outstanding experiences.
The Crown Street Enhancements Programme has now been established to deliver a number of exciting projects designed to improve safety, as well as the experience of patients and staff at Liverpool Women’s. There are a number of clinical risks and challenges that the Trust will be mitigating by enhancing our current site, as well as improving our compliance with clinical standards. Improving our facilities will help to provide a better patient and staff experience whilst also providing an interim solution to tackle some of our clinical challenges.
A number of services are already operational in the CDC such as CT scanning and at the end of October we saw our 4500th patient which is a fantastic milestone to achieve. In addition to CT facilities the CDC is also providing Respiratory services for patients with a number of new services planned to commence over the coming months.
Our mobile MRI scanner has arrived and saw its first patients on 8th November 2022.
