About the project
We have been working with the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust to consolidate the Children’s emergency facilities, remodelling the children’s and adults waiting areas and creating a new Resuscitation area.
Phase 1 involved the relocation of the children’s emergency facilities and was completed in November 2018. Phase 2 is currently on site. In order to keep these vital services running, this has been a complex sequence of works, leading to a large amount of temporary works. and diversions for patients and staff. This phase will complete the link between the main hospital & the children’s ED. It will include new triage and reception facilities to the adult and children’s entrances.
The new resuscitation area will create 6 new bays providing up to date spaces and facilities to each bed in this very critical area. Once opened it will also provide space for the adult emergency department to increase capacity.
The works are due to complete late spring 2020. In the meantime we extend the Trusts apologies if you are unfortunate enough to need the hospitals emergency services.
