Mayor at HeatherwoodOur fantastic new Heatherwood Hospital has been getting the praise it deserves this week from visitors who have been taking part in a series of organised tours.

The special tours have been held every day this week, ahead of the building’s opening on Monday 28 March.

Small groups of local senior councillors, the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, and the Trust board and governors all enjoyed being guided around the hospital.

The groups were taken on hour-long tours to see the building ‘through the eyes of a patient’. They visited the outpatient areas and procedure rooms, the day case pods and state-of-the-art operating theatres, the diagnostics area including the CT room and endoscopy, and the impressive inpatient ensuite side rooms and four-bed wards.

Mayor John Story said: “It is a truly state-of-the-art and magnificent facility, and brilliantly designed - it fits into its woodland surroundings so well.”

The last tour will take place on Friday morning and then next week the removals company will be on site to transfer the final pieces of furniture and equipment into the new building.

The first patients will arrive for their appointments and procedures on Monday 28 March, the hospital’s grand opening day.
