The Hospital combines the existing services of two hospitals on the site of the old general hospital. The project comprised demolition of the pre 1970’s facilities and refurbishment of the O&G and Rehabilitation Departments, combined with a major new Acute Hospital.
Percy Thomas Architects worked as lead designer on the whole project which includes a newly completed Acute Hospital featuring 1,159 beds (200 single rooms), a new A&E facility, CSSD, 35 Operating Theatres, Diagnostic and Assessment departments, 4 Linear Accelerators, 14 X-Ray Machines, 2 MRI and 2 CT Scanners.

In addition, a new Special Care Baby Unit, Maternity Unit and Rehabilitation Units were constructed containing clinical and FM Facilities as well as a Brachyotherapy Unit, Oncology Unit and new Mortuary. We were involved with the Interior Design Strategy for the Hospital identifying key aspects of the design requiring Trust input through the Reviewable Design process set up to capture all aspects of the Interior finishes for review and agreement with the Client.
