The Countess of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has submitted plans for a new facility to replace its existing Women and Children’s Building.
The proposals reflect the Trust’s ambition to provide the highest quality care for patients and their families, using modern technology and infrastructure to enhance treatment options for the local community and wider region.
A new MRI scanner was recently delivered to Ellesmere Port Hospital (EPH) as part of a new Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) that will be opening soon.
When complete, the Hub will act as a one-stop shop for outpatient diagnostic testing, with MRI, Computed Tomography (CT) and ultrasound scans being carried out seven days a week.
Talking about death and dying is incredibly difficult. It is something most people don’t want to think about until they must.
On Wednesday 29 June, our Palliative Care team, with support from Spiritual Care services and volunteers, hosted a Support to Care Café designed to encourage Trust colleagues to confront these difficult ideas.
