What We Did
In order to improve existing urgent care facilities and increase overall capacity, Gilling Dod were commissioned to provide a new £13million two-storey extension and refurbishment of York’s existing Emergency Department.
The proposed accommodation looks to deliver an eight-bed resuscitation area, twelve new assessment and treatment cubicles, a dedicated Paediatric area and much improved waiting facilities directed towards improving the overall patient experience.
In addition, there is a High Consequence Infectious Disease cubicle served by a point of care testing laboratory that provides facilities not currently available to the immediate locality of York.
As with most current healthcare projects, the proposed extension has had to be arranged around a live, busy clinical environment. This has been particularly amplified during the Covid pandemic. Key to resolving this was strategic planning with all stakeholders to ensure that enabling works could be prioritised to enable maintenance of service with minimal disruption.
