Improving our Estates 2018/19


£21m invested in our estates during 2018/19

We have invested £21m during 2018/19 to transform and improve the environment for our patients. With one of the biggest capital investments in our history, the planned capital programme for 2018/19 saw improvements made across our three main hospitals and within community services.

If patients and families receive care in a better environment then their experience is much more positive. We are lucky in that a lot of our wards and departments are of a good standard but there are areas that need to be renovated, updated or in some cases moved to a bigger area. 

We have had a really strong track record in recent years of investing in services for our patients – including our £12m maternity unit at FGH, over £1m for the new Acute Stroke Unit at the RLI, and a further £1m for a new Cardiac Centre at WGH. 

We are very proud that this investment is one of the largest in the Trust’s history, and we hope it sends a strong message to our staff and the local people that we remain absolutely committed to making our hospitals the best they can be.
