Tony Bell, Chief Executive at the RLUH, said: “We were pleased to have the opportunity to discuss our plans for the new hospital with the Secretary of State for Health, not only are we developing a 21st-century hospital, but we are planning to create a biocampus which will be a major health science research hub and will link to academia, health and industry together.”

Deputy Vice-Chancellor Jon Saunders said: “The city has a wide range of biomedical assets and the biocampus will capitalise on these, it will be an essential element of building on existing strengths and placing Liverpool at the heart of health research and development in the UK and in the global marketplace.”
