About the event

This is an IHP Project (joint venture between VINCI Building and Sir Robert McAlpine)

Following on from the recently completed Urgent Treatment Centre, IHP are delivering an expansion and re-configuration of the U&EC ‘Front Door’ services by way of a single-storey extension and reconfiguration of existing buildings.

This project focuses on expanding the Emergency Department, and relocating a number of other services, including assessment units, to create an improved and more joined-up urgent and emergency care service.

This new emergency ‘front door’ will also have a new Children’s Emergency Unit, which will combine the current Children’s Emergency Department and Paediatric Assessment Unit (PAU).

The new urgent and emergency care expansion will bring together a new large modern Emergency Department, a much more capable Same Day Emergency Care facility, and the new Children’s Emergency Unit, all in one big space.

All of these services will also link directly with the new Urgent Treatment Centre, so that patients can easily move between services to receive the right care depending on their clinical needs.


Visitors will hear from the Project Manager and team about the last year of construction on site – including a flythrough video.

Following this, visitors will be suited up in PPE and be taken on a full site tour. Internally, they will be able to see the finishing and commissioning trades at work While externally, work is just starting.
