Work starts on twin catheter labs in Basingstoke

Modular construction specialist, Darwin Group, has started work on site to build two new catheter labs at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital (see artist’s impression).

Designed for Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT), the new 1972 m2 building will house two hybrid cath labs with ancillary accommodation and 10 recovery beds. The project will include a link corridor connecting the new building to the hospital’s existing Cardiology Department. The new labs will enable the Trust to see more patients and to administer tests at a faster rate.

As part of its turnkey service, the Darwin team has incorporated a barrel vault-style roof into the plans to ensure the new building is in keeping with the rest of the hospital’s design. The new building is set for completion by September this year. Charles Pierce, managing director of Darwin Group, said: “We are proud to be working with Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust on this healthcare project to provide a new facility for patients across Hampshire. The new cath labs will provide much needed additional capacity and patient accommodation which will support the NHS in delivering day to day tasks more efficiently.

“Our designers have done a fantastic job to create an eye-catching exterior with a high quality modern clinical patient and staff environment to meet current and future demands. We have worked hard with the Trust team to arrive at the agreed design solution, and look forward to managing the construction and commissioning phases to fully meet its expectations.”

Dr Lara Alloway, Chief Medical Officer at HHFT, said: “This is a very exciting development for the Trust. Having two new cardiac catheterisation labs will support our staff to keep providing outstanding care to those who need us. As the population grows, our technology develops, and the demand for our services continues to increase, we need to develop further to keep providing efficient and sustainable health services. This expansion of our cardiology services will allow us to meet current and future demand, so it will certainly make a difference to everyone. A huge thank you to all involved in making this project a reality.”
