Development over the last two decades has allowed the Royal to continually improve services and facilities for patients and staff. In the largest area of the hospital all the main surgical and medical specialties are provided, as well as clinical and non-clinical support services. These include:
- Intensive Care, High Dependency and Coronary Care Units
- Accident & Emergency (including dedicated children’s area)
- A theatre suite including specialist theatres for orthopaedics and two post anaesthetic care units
- Pathology laboratories, physiotherapy and occupational therapy
- Diagnostic radiology, CT scanning and MRI scanning
An education centre complete with lecture theatre, tutorial rooms and library
- A cardiac catheter suite, dedicated endoscopy suite and dermatology treatment suite
- Osteoporosis Centre with DEXA bone scanning equipment.
Ten out-patient suites including a rapid access chest pain clinic
In August 2010, following a year-long building project, the trust opened three new wards on site at a cost of £12million. The facility, built to increase capacity - as referrals continue to rise alongside an ageing population – has 50% single rooms, en-suite four bed bays and specialist isolation rooms for patients with infection. It is the culmination of a five-year investment plan that has seen the trust plough £80million into new services, accommodation and the environment. The trust has not secured private finance for its initiative, choosing instead to invest surplus money, raised through over performing on contracted activity.
