New foetal medicine unit to open in Liverpool


Construction work begins on new facility

Tilbury Douglas has started work on a new foetal medicine unit for Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust.

The facility will provide screening services for pregnant women, including those who have previously had a pregnancy with foetal abnormalities or have issues with their current pregnancy.

The scheme will also enable the trust to upgrade its imaging department, with works set to be completed by the end of this year.

The appointment of Tilbury Douglas comes after its completion of the Liverpool Women’s Hospital neonatal unit in 2020.
