Kicking off our prototype tours

With great excitement, the Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct prototype rooms have been unveiled to give staff a first-hand experience of their future workspaces.

Liverpool Hospital Acting General Manager Scott McGrath said staff were delighted with the new look and function of their new workspaces. The project team testing out the secondary staff station.

“We’ve seen lots of artist impressions and plans of the future building but this is the first real opportunity for our staff to get onto the construction site, test the design and layout of their future workspaces, and ask lots of questions,” he said.

“It is fantastic to see our hospital redevelopment reach this stage and our staff are so excited to experience their future workspaces and provide feedback before the final versions are built.’’

Each of the spaces were designed after extensive consultation with staff, community representatives, and feedback from clinicians to ensure the rooms will be fit for purpose.

There are nine prototype rooms including a purpose-built Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Special Care Nursery, a birthing suite (with and without a bath), consulting room, treatment room, a cancer treatment bay, staff station, and a secondary staff station.
