Transformation of Lister’s emergency department nears completion

The new children’s emergency service area within the overall and much expanded emergency department at the Lister opens to patients from 8 October. This marks the completion of the penultimate phase of the unit’s £19 million transformation, providing patients with:

• A state-of-the-art resuscitation area to help with caring for the sickest patients – which includes an over-the-bed x-ray machine so that very ill people can be x-rayed simply without the need to move them;
• Separate areas for adults with major and minor illness and injuries;
• A much bigger children’s facility, supporting those with both major and minor injuries and illnesses.
