Celebrating 20 years as Liverpool Women’s Hospital

Saturday 7th November 2015 marks 20 years since the late Princess Diana of Wales officially opened Liverpool Women’s Hospital.  To celebrate this special day the Trust is giving Prince and Princess bibs to all babies born on the day.  There will also be a visual display in Main Reception and a special Princess menu in ‘Dine Quattro’ on Monday 9th November 2015.

Former patient Elaine Lavelle remembers the day well: "It was a really special day as our first born Sophie was welcomed into the world by royalty. I can remember Princess Diana coming into the room and as both my mum and husband were present at the birth she commented ‘Oh, it was a bit like a cocktail party’. Diana also asked about a name and if my husband was buying me a present.  I remember her beautiful orange Chanel suit whilst I was wearing an M&S nightdress – couldn’t compete!  She was beautiful and very engaging and seemed genuinely interested in our situation”.

Chief Executive Kathryn Thomson comments: "We are really excited to be celebrating 20 years here at Liverpool Women’s. We are very proud of our heritage, and all of our staff who work tirelessly to make Liverpool Women’s the centre of excellence it is today".

If you remember Princess Diana opening the hospital all those years ago then the Trust would love to hear from you. You can send a tweet @liverpoolwomens or a message on Facebook search Liverpoolwomens. Alternatively email your memories to
