Coronary Care Unit Opened
Guests included local MPs Lisa Nandy and Yvonne Fovargue, the Mayor of Wigan Councillor Joy Birch, as well as members of the public who have all contributed to the Heart Beat Appeal.
The new Coronary Care Unit now provides much needed modernised facilities covering the Leigh, Wigan and Ashton in Makerfield areas with increased bed capacity and the addition of a second Catheter Laboratory and associated Treatment Rooms, as well as support facilities for both staff and patients. The financial investment into the refurbished and extended accommodation was completed in January 2011 at a cost of £1.4 million
