Next week we’re starting our construction work at King George Hospital to expand our Surgical Hub with a £14m upgrade, which will see us complete, on average, at least 16 additional operations per day.
The initial phase of construction will take place in the Cedar Centre on 22 November and will be completed by Christmas. The work will take place during the day Monday to Friday and some Saturday mornings.
Some patients accessing services in or near the Cedar Centre may notice noisy works during this time and to minimise disruption, we’re providing screens to affected windows and will install dust protection to existing doors and openings. Access to patient areas will not be affected during this first phase of construction.
Our expanded Surgical Hub will include two new theatres, upgraded staff facilities, improved storage, and double the number of recovery beds. It is expected to be completed by spring 2024.
