Spire Liverpool Hospital starts work at iconic address

One Penny Lane is turned into state-of-the-art medical facility

The iconic One Penny Lane is to become a private medical facility

The iconic building at Number One Penny Lane in Liverpool is being turned into a state-of-the art medical facility by Spire Liverpool Hospital.

Building contractor, Lindrick Construction, has begun the refurbishment of the Victorian building to create a 900sq ft facility with treatment and consulting rooms.

Every aspect and detail of the exclusively private clinic has been thought of to give patients the bespoke private experience.

Plans to link the sandstone building to the main hospital via a glass corridor are in place for further ease of access.

Alison Peake, hospital director at Spire Liverpool Hospital, said: "Heritage-wise the building is important so we are going to make sure we are careful in our conversion and sympathetic to its surroundings.

"It is in a conservation village area so it is important to comply with the conditions while making sure it serves its purpose as a medical facility."

When complete One Penny Lane will house The Liverpool Eye Centre, which is a collaboration of ophthalmic surgeons. There will also be an aesthetic suite and a private GP service lead by TV doctor, Dr Arun Ghosh.
