Secretary of State for Health opens Lister’s new emergency department and ward block

Today the Secretary of State for Health, The Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP, visited the Lister to open formally its new emergency department and ward block, which between them comprise the hospital’s new £40 million emergency hub.  The two new facilities form part of the Lister’s £150 million transformation in to the Trust’s main hospital for emergency and inpatient care – a redevelopment programme that completed in October 2014.
