When the refurbishment is completed One Penny Lane will house The Liverpool Eye Centre, a collaboration of senior Ophthalmic Surgeons providing comprehensive quality healthcare service through the clinic. There will also be a consultant lead Aesthetic Suite and a private GP service lead by Dr Arun Ghosh.
Alison Peake, Hospital Director at Spire Liverpool Hospital, said: "The building has an important heritage so we are being very careful in our conversion and sympathetic to its surroundings.
"It is in a Conservation area so it is important to comply with their conditions while making sure it serves its purpose as a medical facility."
