NG Bailey, one of the UK’s largest independent engineering and services businesses, has secured a £7.6 m contract to support the creation of a new build Emergency Care Village in Worksop for Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Undertaken in partnership with Integrated Healthcare Projects (IHP), it will see the firm deliver all mechanical, electrical and public health installations on site – both for the new Emergency Care Village, and the refurbishment of existing clinical and mental health accommodation to create a new Paediatric Assessment Unit and Acute Medical Unit at Bassetlaw Hospital.
A team of engineers, including apprentices, will support the delivery of the new development at Bassetlaw Hospital, which will increase the size of the Emergency Department and provide more accessible same day services. The work began in October, with the project due to be completed in summer 2024. Modern Methods of Construction are being widely used across the project, and many of the service installations – including heavy duty bracketry and spools, plantroom skids, and distribution boards will be manufactured at NG Bailey’s specialist offsite manufacturing facility in Bradford.
The scheme will also be an all-electric design, to support the NHS’s drive towards Net Zero by 2040, as well as building on NG Bailey’s own commitment to its Net Positive responsibility strategy.
NG Bailey and IHP have a long-standing partnership which has delivered many successful complex healthcare refurbishment and new-build developments over the past 10 years – including working on a new Urgent and Emergency Care Department for Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in 2022.
