We are delighted to report that we have been granted funding approval for a state-of-the-art new hospital Frimley Park Hospital through the Government’s New Hospital Programme. This new hospital will provide the modern and efficient environment our patients and staff deserve.
Chief Executive Neil Dardis said: “Our ambition is to provide the highest quality urgent, planned and specialised care in the most modern environment, as well as deliver first class community care. We will ensure that all these services are delivered from a hospital incorporating the very latest sustainability and environmental initiatives and cutting-edge digital technology. We are so excited to be leading this initiative that will transform the future of healthcare for people in and around Frimley.”
The trust’s clinical teams and advisers have recommended that a new site should be found for the new hospital to avoid the significant disruption to patients, services and staff that would be inevitable if an attempt was made to redevelop the current site. This would require a phased demolition and rebuild over many years on a site which is already overly congested. Work on this is about to get underway.
We will also embark on a significant communication and engagement programme so that our patients, staff, volunteers, the local community and other stakeholders will be involved and engaged in all stages of the new hospital development. Your views will play a key part in shaping the new hospital and we’ll keep you regularly updated.
The new hospital will enable the transformation of services for patients and the local community – it will significantly improve patient care, experience and outcomes within an ultra-modern environment for the benefit of patients, visitors and staff including:
