STRUCTURE: Liverpool Women’s Foundation Trust stands to increase its activity under its local primary care trust’s plans to move inpatient and some day case gynaecology activity from Aintree Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to the women’s hospital.

NHS Liverpool’s January 2011 board documents state the proposed move is “in view of the need to ensure optimum service quality”.

The PCT plans to put the proposals to the local authority’s overview and scrutiny committee before launching a wider consultation. The documents noted that out-patient and some day case work would remain at Aintree foundation trust’s Fazakerley Hospital under the proposed reconfiguration.
