Latest updates following recent incident

Updated 3:30pm 23/11/2021

For anyone affected by recent events we have a range of support offers in place. 

The Police cordon has now been removed but the main entrance area is still restricted by a hospital cordon while repair works take place. 

There is now a Mobile Police Station located on the hospital site and an increased Security presence remains in place.

Patient parking is still being diverted to our Mulgrave Street overspill car park. 

Patients must continue to enter the hospital via the New Neonatal Unit only until further notice.

Our services are running as close to normal as possible so please attend Liverpool Women's as planned unless you are contacted to advise you otherwise.

Monitor ratings

Monitor, the independent regulator of NHS Foundation Trusts, publishes two ratings for each Trust.

  • The continuity of services rating is Monitor's view of the risk that the trust will fail to carry on as a going concern. A rating of 1 indicates the most serious risk and 4 the least risk. A rating of 2* means the Trust has a risk rating of 2 but its financial position is unlikely to get worse.
  • The governance rating is Monitor's degree of concern about how the trust is run, any steps they are taking to investigate this and/or any action they are taking. They’ll either indicate we have no evident concerns, that we have begun enforcement action, or that the foundation trust’s rating is 'under review', which means we have identified a concern but not yet taken action.

The role of these ratings is to indicate when there is a cause for concern at a trust. The ratings do not automatically trigger regulatory action. They simply prompt Monitor to consider whether a more detailed investigation is needed.

Monitor updates Foundation Trusts' ratings each quarter and also in 'real time' to reflect any regulatory action taken.

Liverpool Women's is proud of its ratings record and its ability to develop realistic plans that have been consistently delivered within Monitor’s risk framework.
