nurses home demolition work
The redevelopment work at Stamford and Rutland Hospital has resumed with the recent demolition of the former nurses’ accommodation.
This accommodation has not been used for decades and is surplus to the hospital’s requirements for the future of clinical services to be delivered from the site.
The space will be cleared within the next few days and will be gravelled over in preparation for the next phase of the development.
The work has been carried out over the weekend to keep any disruption to patients, visitors and staff to a minimum.
Hospital matron, Caroline Wood, said: “The work remains on schedule, and we are pleased with feedback from the local community and the neighbouring GP and dentist services that any disruption and inconvenience by the work thus far has been kept to an absolute minimum and we thank them for their continued patience.”
A new modular meeting hall adjacent to the main hospital building is now in place and once decorated and fully fitted and furnished, will provide an all-purpose and more up-to-date training, meeting and conference facility.
Caroline added: “Initial work has started on the new staff hub’ to support staff well-being and provide a space where staff across the site and take their breaks and enjoy a truly restful place to make the most of their downtime.”
Peterborough City Hospital, Rutland and Stamford Hospital and Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon are all part of North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust.
Redevelopment work at Stamford and Rutland Hospital is on course, with the demolition of the former nurses’ accommodation now complete.
