A STATE of the art ward to treat patients diagnosed with urological conditions has been opened at Arrowe Park Hospital.
The urology ward, fully redesigned and refurbished at a cost of almost £1.4m, was opened by Dr Peter Carter, chief executive and general secretary of the Royal College of Nursing.
As well as treating patients in Wirral, the ward also serves as a regional cancer centre for patients with all major urological cancers.
With 24 urology beds, including 10 side rooms with en suite facilities, the new ward will be staffed by four consultant urologists and an experienced team of specialist urology nurses.
Sister Helen Edwards, ward manager at Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, said: “The views of consultants, nurses, infection control staff, architects and crucially our patients, have been taken on board and the design of the ward reflects these wishes.”
