New £49m emergency department
Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, which runs the hospital in Slough, shared its vision for the £49m project at a public engagement event on May 25.
The proposed emergency department would contain separate children’s and minor injuries units as well as 36 individual rooms for major injuries.
The building would also include a 34-bed combined assessment and ambulatory care centre.
If approved, construction work could start in spring 2017.
The proposal is part of a multi-million pound investment programme to transform services at Wexham Park and Ascot’s Heatherwood Hospital over the next few years.
Frimley Health Director of HR and Corporate Services Janet King said the trust would welcome public views on the scheme.
She added: “This is an exciting time for Wexham Park Hospital, which was recently rated “Good” by the Care Quality Commission.
“The new emergency department and assessment centre is the latest stage of our ongoing commitment to provide the highest standards of care for our patients.
“We do hope you will join us to see our ideas for this development and hear how it will benefit people treated there.”
