Work completes on £4.8 m endoscopy suites at Montagu Hospital

Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH) NHS Foundation Trust has taken delivery of two new endoscopy suites at Montagu Hospital in Mexborough, following fit-out and refurbishment specialist contractor, Willmott Dixon Interiors’ reconfiguration and refurbishment over 9,000 ft2 of space within the hospital’s endoscopy ward and rotunda building.

The £4.8 million project is part of the Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) at DBTH, and provides a range of new staff and patient facilities. They include a new reception and waiting area with new WCs, as well as a discharge lounge, recovery ward, consultant and ancillary rooms, and staff rooms. The building also benefits from a full rewire and upgraded ventilation system, while a new rooftop gantry accommodate new air handling units and ducting.

Willmott Dixon Interiors demolished existing internal walls, ceilings, and mechanical and engineering arrangements during the project, with 90% of waste diverted from landfill.  It says it also achieved a social return on investment of almost £620,000, which included the creation of 13 new jobs through a mentoring programme, and enhancements to a nearby community garden. Delivery of the new endoscopy suites follow the completion of an earlier phase of refurbishment at Montagu Hospital’s CDC.

Stuart Dack, Building manager at Willmott Dixon Interiors, said: “We are very pleased to have worked in collaboration with DBTH to complete a second phase of refurbishment at Montagu Hospital. This was a highly successful, fast-paced programme that has delivered exceptional facilities for NHS staff and patients. It will undoubtedly improve patient experience by providing faster diagnosis and treatment for people across south Yorkshire and north Nottinghamshire.”

The project team included P+HS, WT Partnership, CAD 21, and Alan Johnston Partnership.
