Service and Site Investment Programme News

Newsdate: 11 May 2012

The Service and Site Investment programme is our long-term plan to improve and modernise all three of our hospital sites by investing £70 million over the next six years.

We are planning to replace, or renovate, many of our ageing buildings with state-of-the-art healthcare facilities. These developments will transform the experience of our patients, our visitors and our staff. The outstanding new facilities and the exceptional environments will enhance the delivery of our patient care. The light and airy designs will be much more pleasant for our patients, visitors and staff.

Below is a link to a video podcast which provides a site-by-site update on where we are so far. It shows areas where improvements are already underway – the Hanover Block at Leigh, the Education Centre in Wigan – and also gives a sneak preview of building work and modernisations for the future – including a new cancer care unit and pathology laboratory.

We will provide further updates as the programme moves forwards.
