As Liverpool Hospital redevelops and grows, more people will need to get to work each day, so we need to be smarter about how we travel. The Liverpool Hospital Travel Plan 2011-2014 was developed through a partnership between the Health Promotion Service and the Liverpool Hospital Sustainability Taskforce. Action in the plan is based on a facility audit; staff travel survey and a review of hospital policy.
The travel plan provides positive opportunities to improve staff health by increasing physically active commuting like walking, cycling and public transport. While the plan is focused on staff travel, things like maps and new bicycle racks will also benefit patients and visitors.
