After an extensive consultation involving patients, service users, staff and healthcare partners, it has been decided former mental health inpatient unit Stoddart House will be renamed as Longmoor House.

Stoddart House was opened earlier this year as an integrated service for people in North Mersey following a joint project between Mersey Care and Liverpool University Hospitals Foundation Trust (LUHFT).

The new name for the building was chosen because Longmoor Lane runs to the North of the current site and several other notable establishments in the area carry the name of the road, giving it a direct link to the local area and its historical connection to the site.
