Phase 2

Phase 2 is due to start in 2024 and will take up to four years to complete. It will involve a large extension being built out from the current main entrance. Alongside this new build will be significant refurbishment work of existing internal spaces to update facilities and rearrange the overall layout to create the best adjacencies between departments.

To that end, a focal part of Phase 2 will be a new main entrance with an interior atrium spanning all three levels, making it a lot easier for people to visualise the different parts of the hospital and find their way around. This image gives an indication of what it might look like:
