What is happening?



Just a few miles apart, Aintree University Hospital, the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Broadgreen Hospital and the Liverpool University Dental Hospital have a history of successful partnership working. By working together, we have identified additional ways to improve the quality of services.

At the moment care is not spread equally across the trusts. To ensure that all patients have access to the very best care, wherever they live or are treated, doctors, nurses and health professionals from both trusts think they should work together in single teams.

We have a proposal to join up our separate teams and for them to work together across our hospitals. We also want to bring together health and research to improve patient care.

Why do we want to merge?

At this particular time, the NHS faces a number of challenges. The two trusts view the merger as providing opportunities to improve care for patients such as meeting increasing demand for services and managing the need for complex healthcare, ensuring all patients have access to the right services when they need them and much more besides.
