Mossley Hill – ward names revealed


Names for the wards at Mersey Care’s new 80 bed mental healthcare service on the site of the old Mossley Hill Hospital can now be revealed ahead of the site’s expected opening at the end of 2024.

The name of the new unit will remain as Mossley Hill following an extensive public engagement exercise last year, but Trust staff and service users have chosen the names to be used around the new site, which are as follows:

  • Braddock Ward - remembering the pioneering Liverpool MP and public health campaigner Bessie Braddock
  • Archer Ward - in memory of John Archer, the Liverpool born politician, who became the first black mayor of a London borough in 1913 when he was elected in Battersea
  • Roscoe Ward - William Roscoe, Liverpool MP, abolitionist and botanic garden founder
  • Wilkinson Ward - named for Kitty Wilkinson, who pioneered public hygiene in the city’s wash houses
  • The Oasis Café - this was the original name of the café in the old hospital
  • Crawford Suite - the suite for those detained under Section 136 of the Mental Health Act will be named after the original landowner.

More information, videos and updates about the new Mossley Hill mental health unit can be found on our website.
