On the 30 January 2023, we announced our plans to build a new inpatient ward at our hospital. This state-of-the-art facility will provide 24 additional beds in an environmentally sustainable building that has included a lot of design input from our clinical teams.
On this page, we'll share periodic updates on the build progression, along with this link for some of the latest photos and video footage.
March to May 2023
Demolition of existing buildings began in March and construction of the main building got underway in May.
The demolition took just three weeks to complete including stripping the original buildings, and segregating the contents for re-use and re-cycling in many different ways.
The construction phase is now underway including ground work to dig the foundations and installing drainage for the new building.
The two pictures below show on the left work before demolition started, and, on the right the site as at 12th June.
