Have you heard that Leighton Hospital is building a brand new, multi-million-pound A&E department?

Work is now well underway as a result the government funding Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust received last year to reconfigure and expand emergency care services.

The £15m will be put towards a two-storey building next to the site’s current A&E, allowing the hospital to see and treat even more patients.

Dr David Matthews, Consultant in Emergency Medicine, described the new build as “A very important and exciting development for our patients and staff at a time when the NHS has been tested to the maximum.”

The new build is also great news for staff, as they are set to benefit from an extended employee and overflow carpark, which includes more than 300 new spaces.

James Sumner, Chief Executive of Mid Cheshire Hospitals, said: “We would like to thank our staff and local community for their support with this exciting development, and to apologise for any inconvenience the works may cause.”

This new “modern and purpose-built environment” will undoubtedly make working at Leighton even more enjoyable for both permanent and agency staff members.
