The first phase of a pounds5-million refurbishment to Grimsby’s Accident and Emergency department is now complete.
From Monday, patients will be able to make use of the brand new facilities as part of a massive overhaul to Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital’s emergency care centre.
The new centre boasts ten treatment rooms filled with state-of- the-art equipment and will soon play host to an array of additional primary care services as part of an integrated model for the department.
The latest refurbishment is the first of three phases in the development, which will also see a new major injuries area, reception and resuscitation room up and running by April next year.
Hazel Coley, assistant director of services development and modernisation for Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals Trust, said: “There is still work going on and there will still be some disruption for which we would apologise to the patients.
“But I’m sure once we are at the end of the scheme they will see that it’s been worthwhile.”
