Hospital's 'Jigsaw' Building Approved

31 July 2013, 08:43

The Royal Bournemouth Hospital has been given planning permission its new state-of-the-art Jigsaw building.

The trust says it will be a centre of excellence for many services for women including breast cancer care and early pregnancy.

It will be based between the Eye Unit and the Derwent Suite for Orthopaedics.

Richard Renaut, the Trust’s Director of Service Development, said:

“It is great news that the plans have been approved and we now look forward to the work starting. I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in the Jigsaw project and all the dedicated fundraisers who have supported our cause.”

Earlier this month more than 50 people attended a special evening event to see a virtual walkthrough of the proposed building, sharing plans for improved facilities for cancer treatments and women’s health.

Work is due to start in the autumn and, it is hoped, will be completed by late 2014.
