Better patient health and care is at the centre of our plans

The new hospital will reprovide a full range of general inpatient, outpatient and day-case services, alongside maternity services and a 24-hour A&E department. Our flexible design will be able to adapt to changing levels of demand and accommodate up to 600 inpatient beds should that prove necessary.

In partnership with local healthcare providers, we’re working with clinicians and patient and community groups to improve services so that patients can access the right care closer to home and avoid unnecessary trips to the hospital.

When people are admitted, we will provide the best possible care and overall experience and work with partners to minimise unnecessary time spent in a hospital bed. At least 70% of beds will be in single-occupancy rooms compared to around 10% today.

In addition to the current services we provide today, the new hospital will have:
