Why are two of Liverpool’s Trusts merging and when will this happen?

Liverpool has many Trusts that manage hospitals across Central Liverpool, South Liverpool and North Liverpool. In particular, Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust manage:

  • Aintree University Hospital
  • Royal Liverpool University Hospital
  • Broadgreen Hospital
  • Liverpool University Dental Hospital

The Trusts, who have a history of collaborative working to fit the needs of the patients of Liverpool and the North West, have identified additional ways to improve the quality and sustainability of services through further partnership. Our doctors, nurses and health professionals have developed a consistent view that it would be in the best interest of patients if they worked as single clinical teams, delivering the same standards of care, in the same way, across hospital sites. This has led to a proposal for the Trusts to come together as one, through a formal merger.

The merged Trust, which will be called Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, will have a focus on staff and an ambition to be the best place for staff to train and work. Merger brings with it an opportunity to reconfigure services, provide more diverse opportunities for career development and attract more research funding, leading to enhancement of staff skills by delivering and performing more innovative treatments and taking part in clinical trials. Joining the trusts at this time is an opportunity to be involved in one of the most significant changes we will see in the local health service and to drive improvements in care.

The merger is due to be completed by October 2019. You can read more about the merger proposal by visiting

What does the merger mean for nursing?

The merger is an incredibly exciting step forward for integrated care across Liverpool, and nurses will be at the forefront of this. Through closer working, more opportunities will be available for nurses to expand their learning and progress their career.

As one large organisation, nurses can move across sites to access the specialisms and learning opportunities that interest them. The new Trust will also have a renewed focus on research, with plenty of opportunities for nurses to be involved in the latest advancements in healthcare.

Finally, as one large Trust, the experience of working across all four sites will be more consistent than ever, meaning that nurses can spend less time learning new systems and processes and spend more time delivering exceptional patient care.
