What We Did

The Urgent Treatment Centre at Swindon Hospital represents the first part of the exciting Integrated Front Door (IFD) Clinical Model and in doing so improves the respective Emergency and Urgent Care Departments

Gilling Dod Architects have created a new point of access and a high-quality environment for patients, visitors and staff. Providing separate adult and children’s waiting areas with dedicated clinical flows, a significant increase to consultant spaces, together with new plaster and ophthalmology rooms.

Designed with input from patients and staff, the UTC is inclusive and accessible for all; with the Trust’s first ever changing places facility for children and adults with disabilities, block colour pallets for patients with dementia, lowered reception desk access for wheelchair users and expansive sky ceilings to bring the outside, in.

A new Energy Centre will generate sustainable power aiding the Trust in achieving their Net Carbon Zero aspirations.

The next stage of the IFD clinical model is the expansion of the Emergency Department, completing the link to the new Urgent Treatment Centre.

 

“Today, we officially opened our new Urgent Treatment Centre – a modern, fit-for-purpose building which will enable clinical teams to treat patients in the best possible environment.”

Kevin McNamara, Chief Executive of the Trust
