£90m refurb for Heatherwood Hospital

Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Heatherwood Hospital in Ascot, has set out plans to invest in a new £90 million hospital on the site.

The proposal includes a new state of the art building in what is currently part of the woodland on the site, and the sale of land for housing. The sale will make the project possible by part-funding the cost of the new hospital and allowing the current hospital to run until the new one is ready. The hospital’s woodland setting would also bring added benefit to recovering patients, a statement from the trust has said.

The final plans are now due to go before councillors from the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead for a decision.

If approved, the new hospital will include six operating theatres, 40 inpatient beds plus private patient spaces and day case and endoscopy facilities. There will be enhanced diagnostic and outpatient services and room for a primary care hub for the area.

According to the hospital, it will not be possible to continue using the current buildings on site for much longer as they are unaffordable to maintain and not configured to meet modern standards. Therefore the trust believes its plans are the only realistic way of securing fantastic hospital services in Ascot for future generations.
