Annette Walker, Chief Finance Officer with responsibility for Estates at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust said:
“As part of our ongoing monitoring, there has been some identification of RAAC (reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete) in our maternity building. This was our first priority area to inspect when assessing our estate due to the age of the building.
“We are working with our estates team, iFM Bolton, and the national experts in the NHS to safely secure and prop the RAAC immediately.
“We are taking all necessary steps to keep our patients, families and staff safe in the affected area.”
