New Royal Liverpool Hospital

We're moving

Our move to the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital has started.

This is a phased move, which will take place across 24 days – meaning that some services will still be running from the old Royal Liverpool University Hospital, until their move date. 

We will not be welcoming our first patients until 4 October, when our outpatient department becomes one of the first services in the new hospital to become operational. 

The hospital postal address will stay the same, but the main entrance to the hospital will now be via Mount Vernon Street, which is off Prescot Street. To find it by sat-nav you’ll need to use postcode L7 8YE. 

You can read FAQs about the new Royal, here.

Our first move: outpatients

Our outpatient departments will be one of the first services to move in.

From Tuesday 4 October, the new outpatient department will be operational, and patients will be notified in their appointment letters which clinic they should attend.

Staff and volunteers will be on hand to assist with any queries or wayfinding.

St Paul’s Eye Unit: 

St Paul’s Eye Unit’s main outpatient activity in the old Royal will close on Friday 7 October, with emergency outpatients closing on Sunday 9 October.

St Paul’s Eye Unit will be fully live in the new Royal from Monday 10 October. 

Important information: A&E and inpatients

A&E remains at the old Royal whilst we move. Please visit the A&E department here as usual and do not attend the new hospital for emergency care. We will share more details on when A&E will be moving at a later date. If you require urgent care, please contact NHS 111. 

Current inpatients and their families will be told directly when their ward will be moving, and any visiting arrangements for patients.

About the building

We play a significant role in improving Liverpool’s physical, social, and economic health, and the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital is a vital part of this.

It’s more than bricks and mortar – our new hospital will enable us to fundamentally improve healthcare across all of our hospital sites.

The state-of the-art hospital will be the biggest in the country to provide inpatients with 100% single en-suite bedrooms, improving patient experience, safety and enhanced recovery. Read more about the new hospital here.
