In my role as Chair of Adult Health Social Care Scrutiny Committee I think it is important that the committee get out of the town hall and see what is happening on the ground. We recently visited the newly Hanover Diagnostic and Treatment Centre at Leigh Hospital. This state of the art building has the following services on three floors:
Ground floor - the Women's Healthcare unit
First floor - Urology unit
Second floor - the Endoscopy Unit.
Members of the committee were very impressed with the building and how welcoming it was both in decoration and the attitude of the members of staff. They were also impressed with the fact that a patient could be diagnosed and treated in the same place without having to go to different buildings within the Trust.
