Arrowe Park is a very busy hospital. As such, we have tried and tested plans in place to deal with incidents which are out of our control, such as a major power outage.
As soon as electricity was lost in the CH49 postcode area, our emergency backup generators were instantly switched on.
Due to the scale of this power cut, we took the decision to temporarily suspend visiting so we could focus our attention on making the hospital as safe as possible for our patients and our staff.
Visiting was restored within the space of a couple of hours of which we thank the public for their understanding during this power outage.
