Along with Mayor Joe Anderson, Lord Mayor Cllr Gary Miller and Walton MP Steve Rotheram, I was very pleased to be at the new Royal Liverpool hospital’s turf cutting ceremony on Monday morning. I am delighted to see it now happening.
It has been a long journey to get here, with many dedicated groups playing their part to secure the £429m investment. The city is a step closer to having a new world class hospital in 2017 – an important part of our city’s regeneration.
I look forward to seeing the construction progress.
