The hospital’s long term plans will be put into action next week to improve patient care at The Woodthorpe.
The Nottingham Woodthorpe Hospital is beginning its refurbishment next week. The general manager, Mark Lacey, has plans to spend more than £750,000 on the hospital. Including a brand new entrance to the reception with a private patient lounge.
The private hospital currently takes 20% private patients and 80% NHS patients due to overflow in NHS hospitals.
The East Wing of the building will be the first part of the hospital to be refurbished, including some of the consulting rooms and outpatient care. After the East Wing, the gym will be developed for physiotherapy as well as a complete refurbishment of the bedrooms on the wards including walk-in showers for easier access to spinal patients.
Ramsay Health UK, owners of The Woodthorpe, continually invest in their hospitals and have plans for almost all areas of the hospital to be completely refurbished with the addition of a brand new theatre and creation of a modern day surgery unit.
The company said; “We recognise many patients do not need to stay in hospital overnight and can return to the comfort of their own home on the same day of a procedure to be cared for by their families in more relaxing, familiar surroundings.”
