January has been busy with the recruitment process of our new Non-Executive Directors. We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues to help shape the vision and strategy of Liverpool Women’s. I would like to say thank you to Allan Bickerstaffe for his time with us in his Non-Executive role who steps down.
We are busy preparing for our Care Quality Commission inspection in February. Our staff do a wonderful job each and every day and this is a great opportunity for them to demonstrate the fantastic care they provide.
I am delighted that we have been formally accredited as an Endometriosis site. The clinic is a dedicated specialist clinic run by one of our Gynaecologists Dr George Botros, who has the expertise in the management of endometriosis and chronic pelvic pain. The service offers specialist advanced keyhole surgical intervention for the excision and removal of endometriosis lumps. If you would like to find out more about our Endometriosis clinic you can on our website here.
The Liverpool Echo this week published a lovely story about a couple who used EmbryoGlue whilst going through IVF at The Hewitt Fertility Centre, helping them to successfully conceive, giving them a little baby boy. You can read their story here. Research strongly suggests that the use of EmbryoGlue increases pregnancy rates; we offer this as standard to all of our patients receiving treatment through The Hewitt Fertility Centre.
They also published a story around the new RESPONSE research study, that we are conducting for women who have experienced recurrent miscarriages, if you would like to take part or find out more click here.
On Friday we welcomed in to the hospital Luciana Berger MP, it was a pleasure to accompany Luciana to our Neonatal Unit and show her the amazing care our Neonatal staff give each and every day. Thank you for coming Luciana!
Hope 2015 has started as a great your for you all.
