Royal Liverpool Hospital

Royal hospital meet-the-buyer open day

Carillion, preferred bidder to build the £335m replacement hospital in central Liverpool for Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospitals Trust, is due to hold an event for potential suppliers on Tuesday 12 November.

Local companies, suppliers and sub-contractors which want to be involved with the project are invited to the event, at the Foresight Centre, University of Liverpool, 1 Brownlow Street, Liverpool L69 3GL.

The new hospital will include a 40-bed critical care unit, 18 operating theatres and one of the largest emergency departments in the North West, with a CT scanner and special lifts for major trauma patients, which go straight to theatres.

Carillion said the project will provide 750 full-time construction jobs, of which 60% will be for local people and 15% from priority wards in the city.

Austin Bell, project director for Carillion, said: "The new Royal will be one of the biggest construction projects in the city and offers huge opportunities for local people, suppliers and sub-contractors.

"It will generate genuine opportunities for the Liverpool regional economy and give local people and businesses the opportunity to get involved with such an exciting project to help create a world class hospital of which they can be proud."

  • Any companies interested in being part of the supply chain that will contribute to the new hospital and would like to attend the event on 12 November should email their company name and address to with 'Meet the Buyer' in the email title.
