The redevelopment and demolition work at Stamford and Rutland Hospitals is on schedule but will be paused during the Christmas and New Year break.

Patients and visitors will have seen scaffolding in place in recent weeks as part of the work to demolish the former nurses’ accommodation building.

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 area is currently being prepared for a new meeting hall facility, and work on this is due to be completed early in the New Year.

Hospital matron, Caroline Wood, said: “The work is 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.

“A new meeting hall will provide the hospital with a more up-to-date and suitable facility to host training, meetings and conferences. Initial work is also starting on the proposed ‘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.”

Redevelopment work at the hospital site will be halted on 20 December and resume 4 January 2023.

Peterborough City Hospital, Rutland and Stamford Hospital and Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon are all part of North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust.
