Reinvesting back into the Alexandra Hospital
The Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust has recently announced several planned healthcare infrastructure improvements as part of its clinical services strategy to meet current and future requirements at The Alexandra Hospital site in Redditch. This includes replacing existing theatres; introducing state of the art robot-assisted surgery; and, the return of the Garden Suite Chemotherapy Unit to the Alexandra Hospital from Kidderminster.
In considering its clinical services strategy for future healthcare requirements, The Trust has been evolving an indicative future land use plan for the Alexandra Hospital site, which is shown below.
As shown on the below plan The Trust has identified land that is surplus to healthcare requirements because it is not currently used for any healthcare or ancillary services and is also not part of The Trust’s future healthcare plans.
This includes 0.7 hectare of land at the entrance to The Alexandra Hospital estate known as Plot 3.
In accordance with the NHS property disposal policy, all the proceeds from the sale of this surplus site will be reinvested by the Trust in future developments at The Alexandra Hospital Site. The Trust is currently developing a number of plans to expand and improve services at The Alexandra Hospital Site.
Hinton Group will also work in partnership with The Trust to make sure that there is no loss of parking spaces for patients, visitors or staff. We will make sure that replacement parking spaces are available before any current parking space is lost as a result of the development.
Matthew Hopkins, Chief Executive of Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, said:
“Our plans to further expand and improve services and facilities at the Alexandra Hospital include the introduction later this year of robotic assisted surgery and, longer term, the development of a new operating theatre complex. These plans will require a significant amount of capital investment. Having additional funding available from the sale of land which is surplus to our requirements will enable us to deliver further improvements at the Alexandra for the benefit of our patients and our teams.”
