Wirral set to benefit from £18m national capital funding investment
08 August 2019
Department of Health and Social Care has today confirmed trusts, clinical commissioning groups and health and care partnerships across the country will receive capital funding worth £1.8bn for a variety of schemes to improve buildings and estates, redesign services and care pathways, and improve patient care across the country.
£18m has been allocated to NHS Wirral CCG which will be used to co-locate the Urgent Treatment Centre on site with Arrowe Park Hospital. The proposed redesign of the urgent care model will include a single, outward facing front door via the Urgent Treatment Centre which will enable improved and clinically efficient patient flow, therefore improving patient experience as well as providing the platform on which to base behaviour and cultural change.
