Estuary is on point!

We’re going full steam with our plans to move to Estuary Point in summer 2018. As reported before this flagship building will replace the former Cheshire and Merseyside area office in Anfield, Liverpool and will bring our workforce  together under one roof, moving away from decades of being separated in different buildings. 

 

Our project teams have been working with architects on design plans that better integrate the workforce and achieve a corporate style that is already used in the control centres in Manchester and Lancashire. 

 

The designs ensure that the 999, 111, urgent care and patient transport control services are all hosted alongside each other on the upper floor and important major incident suites are also included at the heart of the centre to help us to deliver efficient management of major emergencies.

 

Included in the design is improved meeting space and a number of specialist training suites that will allow us deliver all elements of training including operational mandatory courses and a variety of IT based training. Also key to design is both security and resilience with the facility being highly technically resilient in relation to networks and power provision.

 

Softer elements of the project include the publication of travel plan and localised short walks to help staff stay healthy.  Communication and consultation with staff affected by the move is also taking place.
