The new state-of-the-art Royal hospital for Liverpool

I am very pleased that the Appointment Business Case for the new Royal hospital has now been agreed. This bring the new hospital a step closer.

I welcome this very important milestone achieved after so many years of campaigning.

The new hospital will bring improved health facilities helping to narrow the ten and an half year gap in the life expectancy between people in Liverpool and those in more prosperous areas.

The new Bio campus, expanding one of Liverpool’s growing sectors, will be a major step forward in Liverpool’s regeneration; putting Liverpool on the world stage for life sciences and bringing 5,000 hi-tech jobs.
