Andy Burnham and some people from the Uni.
Health Secretary Andy Burnham visited the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust to see first hand how dental facilities have been improved for people with special needs.
The Liverpool University Dental Hospital is run by the Trust and the University of Liverpool and provides specialist dental services for the local community as well as a teaching facility for 400 dental students.
The Dental Hospital has recently received an investment of £6 million to improve dental education and services. The hospital now has brand new facilities including a new minor oral surgery area and dedicated facilities for patients with special needs, and those who are medically compromised. This includes special wheelchair facilities and specially designed sedation suites.
Health Secretary Andy Burnham said: “It’s great to see the new facilities recently unveiled by the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust. They are world class and some of the best in the country. The investment in patient services means the Trust now boasts excellent dental care for patients with special needs as well as top-class educational facilities for the dentists of the future.”
Professor Sir Howard Newby, Vice-Chancellor, said: “The hospital has made significant contributions to health, research and education for more than 100 years and today is home to one of Europe’s largest facilities for training dentists. This new development will help build on its pioneering history and bring researchers and clinicians together for the benefit of patient care.”
During the visit Mr Burnham also heard about the plans to build a new hospital to replace the existing Royal Liverpool University Hospital.
