Why are construction works taking place?
Consort, in conjunction with its partners, will begin constructing a temporary building to be used as a ‘Decant Ward’. This building will be in place to accommodate patients whilst upgrade and maintenance works take place within the hospital.
The construction of this building will take approximately one year, and when completed, upgrade works will begin. Initially this ‘Decant Ward’ will be configured as a 16-bed facility to allow ventilation, maintenance and other upgrade works to be undertaken in ICU and Haematology during 2023. Once these works are completed the ward will be reconfigured into a 40-bed ward allowing further works to proceed in the remaining Gates, continuing for the next few years until early 2027.
