Friday 07 October 2022

On Saturday 15 October the public will have the chance to see some of the work in progress for Phase 1 as well as detailed plans for the second phase, for which a planning application is due to be submitted shortly.

Staff involved in the modernisation programme will be at Beau Sejour Foyer from 10am until 2pm to talk to anyone interested through the plans and to answer any questions. All are welcome to come and see and how this exciting project is progressing.

The essential hospital upgrades are proposed to take place in phases over the next 8 years. Plans for Phase 1, which include a new critical care unit and theatre recovery ward, have been approved and construction is well under way.

Proposed plans for Phase 2 include a new Main Entrance, outpatients facility, new Women's and Children's ward, new Private Patients ward and New Orthopaedic facilities, a refurbished and extended Theatre Suite, a New Admissions and Discharge Unit and an extended Emergency Department.

The Beau Sejour drop-in will feature a 3D video of the new departments produced using virtual reality software which will give people a sense of how the use of this software has played an important role in enabling the teams to visualise and refine plans. There will also be detailed plans for each department, 3D drawings and example images of what the new facilities will look like.

Director of Hospital Modernisation Jan Coleman said:

'We're hoping to see lots of people on the day to discuss this exciting development for the Bailiwick face-to-face. Together we are creating our hospital of tomorrow.'

The modernisation planning to date has involved extensive consultation with the clinical teams from HSC, the Medical Specialist Group and other local healthcare providers, as well as a team of external healthcare design specialists. Public consultation and engagement have also been undertaken, including a project called Island Voices, which has sought community input into the look and feel of the new facilities. A summary of this project can be seen at the Porters Lodge within the PEH

Jan Coleman said:

'The upgraded hospital will benefit all our staff and community. We'll have a best practice clinical environment to help us continue delivering the very highest levels of care.'

Plans to modernise the hospital have been underway since the programme was given States approval in March 2019.

Jan Coleman added:

'It has taken a considerable amount of work to get to where we are now, and we are delighted to be underway with Phase 1 and would value showing our service users the Phase 2 plans.'

Our hospital modernisation forms part of the broader Partnership of Purpose initiative to transform the delivery of health and care locally. The series of upgrades will reflect NHS Building Notes Standards, meaning they will adhere to latest clinical best practice. Phase 1 will be completed towards the end of 2023 and Phase 2 is planned to follow after that.
