West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper welcomes the announcement from West Lancs Primary Care Trust that it is to make a major investment, over £1 million to update and improve diabetes services and Genito-Urinary Medicine.

West Lancashire PCT are using money which has been made available to them, to improve the quality and standards of health services in West Lancashire. As a result of this capital they are not only building a new Diabetes Centre, but there have also been talks of the development of a new Genito-Urinary Medicine Centre on the Ormskirk Hospital Site.

West Lancashire PCT secured the £1 million investment needed from Government, the Strategic Health Authority as well Southport and Formby PCT.

Rosie Cooper MP said:

“There is no doubt this investment was much needed to bring the services up to a decent modern standard. I am sure there will be many local people who use the services who will be pleased by the news they will have new facilities.”

“For users of these two new centres it means access to up to date and much needed facilities with good access for all residents. It is particularly important that we have good quality diabetic facilities and services given the increasing number of people living with diabetes. Improving facilities within local health services will improve access to a better quality of life and wellbeing for patients”
