£1m support for A&E at George Eliot Hospital


The Department of Health announced last Friday that A&E services at George Eliot Hospital are to receive £1 million to help ease pressure for winter 2017/18.

The news was part of an announcement of  £100 million A&E capital funding, outlined in the spring Budget by the Chancellor, to support emergency departments in time for next winter. The funding awarded at this stage is being allocated to 70 NHS hospitals including the George Eliot Hospital.

The funding will be used by hospitals to meet the 95% standard of admitting, transferring, or discharging patients within 4 hours by ensuring patients are treated in the most appropriate setting.

This investment is one part of the A&E plan being implemented across the NHS this year to get performance to 95% during 2018.

George Eliot Hospital’s Finance Director, Ian O’Connor said: “We welcome this investment and are now developing detailed plans to improve access to A&E and Urgent Care for our local community.”

George Eliot Hospital recently benefited from a new £4.1m endoscopy unit, a new energy centre and a state of the art MRI scanner suite. Last year the hospital also completed the refurbishment of its main theatre suite and the maternity unit building.
