Newsdate: 13 February 2015

The Cardiology and Respiratory Department at Leigh Infirmary is moving and being upgraded. Work began on the Leigh site in what was the old Gastroenterology Department in December 2014. The unit will open in spring 2015 and will contain the following:

  • 1 exercise lab

  • 1 Pacing room
  • 1 clinical room/ pacing room
  • 2 echo rooms
  • 2 ECG rooms
  • 2 event recorder/vitalograph rooms

The new accommodation will bring a number of key benefits:

  • The department will be able to see more patients which should reduce waiting times
  • Improve the quality of the service with better treatment rooms and more diagnostic tests being available, as well as,
  • Enhancement of the patient environment
