What We Did

This scheme sees the delivery of the first two phases of Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Critical Care Expansion programme at Royal Preston Hospital. It will provide much needed new bed capacity and a modern environment for staff and patients.

Extension and remodelling of a dilapidated part of the existing estate transformed the tired building into a new 14 bed state-of-the-art Critical Care Unit. The scheme will enable the department to continue to operate fully whilst the existing unit is upgrade and remodelled into a fully HTM complaint world class facility.

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, the works were accelerated to bring these beds on line several months ahead of schedule.  This was only achieve by the Contractor working 24/7 for the final two months of the scheme together with fantastic collaboration of all teams involved.

Now begins the next phase, which involves the refurbishment of the existing department, culminating in the completion of the Trusts Critical Care Expansion Programme providing increased cutting-edge services for the people of Preston and surrounding areas
