Right Arrow Wards moving at Southport hospital
22 November 2017 at 16:27

Southport and Formby District General Hospital began the move of three wards within the Town Lane building today.

• The stroke ward 10b is moving to ward 15b
• Surgical ward 15b moves to ward 11a
• Surgical ward 11a moves to ward 10b and becomes the Surgical Assessment Unit

The moves bring acute, medical and surgical care wards into one place. Each ward will keep its telephone numbers from their original locations.

The moves are part of the Trust’s £250,000 “Safe at all Times” project which aims to make the best use possible of buildings and staff. The work at Southport also includes creation of a clinical communications hub which will support bed management and give oversight of activity across the hospital to underpin safe care.

Therese Patten, Chief Operating Officer, said: “Having patients in the right place at the right time is a key factor in giving them the best possible experience while in our care.

“I want to thank all the staff who have worked so hard to make these changes happen as well as patients and their families for their patience this week.”
