In the summer of 2017, we consulted patients in Liverpool, Sefton and Knowsley about a proposed reconfiguration of Liverpool's hospital-based Orthopaedic and Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) services for adults.

The findings from the consultation can be viewed here and further background information which was published during the consultation can be found below.
The insights gathered during the consultation were used to inform a final business case for the proposed reconfiguration. The business case was considered and approved by the Joint Committee of the North Mersey Commissioners in November 2019 and by the Joint Health Scrutiny Committee for Cheshire & Merseyside in March 2019. Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust are now working on delivering the changes, which are expected to take place in 2019. Patient with existing appointments are unlikely to be affected by these changes; however, if there is an impact patients will be notified by the trusts.
