Hospital’s new emergency unit on target
BLUSTERY winds and heavy snow have not affected work on Weston General Hospital’s new �8.5million emergency department.
Weston Area Health Trust says the project to create the urgency care unit at the hospital in Grange Road, Uphill, is on time and it will open in April.
The state-of-the-art department will include a new ambulance bay, four new examination rooms, one treatment bay and three resuscitation bays.
The waiting room will be enlarged, as will the staff changing facilities and storage space.
A trust spokesman said: “The recent spell of cold weather has not affected the emergency department project, as most external work is now complete.
