Proposed first phase redevelopment of St Mary's Hospital
Residents, patients and staff are to be consulted on plans to redevelop the eastern area of St Mary’s Hospital site in Paddington.
The proposal is for the creation of a brand new building which will house the majority of St Mary’s adult and paediatric outpatients’ services and supporting diagnostics, which are currently provided from 40 different locations on the site.
The development would see Salton House, the Dumbell building, and the Victoria and Albert building make way for a modern, flexible and welcoming facility.
Dr Tracey Batten, chief executive of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust said:
“St Mary’s has an aging estate with outpatients services scattered across the hospital site. The proposed development will allow us to bring together all our outpatients services into one purpose-built, modern facility.
“We have an opportunity to achieve a real step change for patients in terms of improving their experience of our outpatient services and the overall quality of care they receive.
“The Trust is committed to involving staff, patients, carers, GPs, local residents and other stakeholders with an interest in the hospital’s future at every stage of the development to ensure all our services and facilities help us provide the very best care and to deliver the development with minimum disruption.”
Large-scale public engagement, which includes a public consultation and exhibition, will begin in early September 2016, with the ambition to put in a formal planning application later in the autumn.
