CHANGES to wards at Wigan Infirmary are part of the ongoing redevelopment of the hospital, health chiefs insist.

Last Friday, the hospital changed the function of many existing wards which they say was necessary given the development of certain departments on the site.

The changes also include a new patient processing area, called a Ambulatory Assessment Area, which doctors say will allow patients to be assessed in a timely manner, with the aim to provide a consultant review within ONE hour of attendance.
