What are the proposals for general surgery?
Aintree Hospital would focus on providing all emergency surgery, while the Royal Liverpool Hospital would provide planned specialist surgery. Currently, the two hospitals each provide some aspects of both. Planned (elective) care would no longer take place at Broadgreen Hospital.
Watch Dr Tristan Cope, Consultant in Intensive Care Medicine and Medical Lead for Clinical Service Reconfiguration at Liverpool University Hospitals, explain the proposals for general surgery.
