STRUCTURE: Frimley Park NHS Foundation Trust claims it is “on track” for the spring completion of its new emergency department.
In its latest newsletter for members, the trust said: “Construction is well under way, with contractors currently working towards completion by May.”
It added: “Once the new emergency department is open and in use, refurbishment of the existing A&E will start.
“This area will be transformed into a dedicated clinical decisions unit adjacent to separate assessment units for medical and surgical patients.”
A “cardiac village” is being built at the side of the hospital in tandem with the emergency department development. It will house a cardiac cath lab and clinical investigations unit.
“This work is a little behind schedule but the team are aiming for a completion date towards the middle of March,” the newsletter said.
Two wards, G2 and G3, are also being refurbished. The wards’ six-bed bays are being converted into four-bed bays plus six side rooms with en-suite facilities.
