Plans To Rebuild Heatherwood Hospital On Show
Health bosses in Berkshire have revealed their plans to rebuild the Ascot hospital.
They say they want to replace old and outdated buildings with a new surgical hospital, with extra land sold off.
Dr John Wiggins, the Medical Director at Heatherwood and Wexham Park Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and co-chair of the Shaping the Future Clinical Steering Group, said:
"Our starting point has been what's best for patients."
Dr Asif Ali, a Slough GP and co-chair of the Shaping the Future Clinical Steering Group, said:
"We are committed to only make changes where there is clear evidence that they will improve quality and meet the evolving needs of local people."
Other ideas they're looking into include moving urgent care services to Bracknell and the closed Ascot Birth Centre is unlikely to re-open.
The plans are on show throughout June and July:
- Friday 15 June Bracknell Princess Square 10am ? 2pm
- Saturday 7 July Maidenhead Nicholson Centre 10am ? 4pm
- Tuesday 10 July Ascot Heatherwood Hospital 12-5.30pm
- Thursday 12 July Slough Observatory shopping centre 10am ? 3.30pm
- Windsor, tbc
