Black Country News: First-class hospital'in four years' WALSALL.

AN ambitious plan to pump pounds 140 million into boosting a Walsall hospital has been hailed as a "further major vote of confidence" in the borough.

Money is set to be pumped into Manor Hospital through a PFI - private finance initiative -to create a first-class hospital within four years.

The plan is part of a series of schemes helping to change the face of Walsall and improve the lives of residents.

Coun Tom Ansell, Walsall Council leader, said: "By any yardstick this is tremendously good news for the people of Walsall.

"Some of the buildings are very old and do need replacing. The people of Walsall deserve the best and this scheme means that's what we'll get.

"We've all been very patient and I'm glad it's now time for our patience to be rewarded."
