The Ysbyty Glan Clwyd you know and see is changing…and it’s changing for the better! Already patients are benefitting from newly improved surroundings thanks to ongoing work across the site.
Since the project began in 2008, and through a lot of hard work from all involved, a big start has have been made to improve the hospital facilities already.
The story so far
We were told by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) that we needed a formal plan to remove asbestos from the Glan Clwyd site in an agreed timescale.
Getting the go-ahead and funding to remove asbestos, means that we can take the opportunity to refurbish the hospital to make it fit for purpose for the future needs of the people it serves.
We have already carried out major work on site and will continue over the coming years to remove asbestos and provide a world class facility for staff, patients and the public.
Our milestone targets
The first major milestone reached was the reopening of the main Operating Theatre Department, on time and on budget, on the 28th of May 2012.
This was followed by the new Mortuary Department in December 2012, a modular building. Preparation is now underway for the new Pathology Department which is where all blood and tissue samples will be examined and where the Blood Transfusion department will be housed.
Work is now ongoing on the outside of the hospital for the new Emergency Quadrant. It will be a three story building. There will be more operating theatres on the first floor, and ventilation and support equipment on the second floor.
We have also held a series of meetings to discuss the kind of work which will take place in the Ambulatory Quarter. This will be a new purpose built area at the front of the hospital for day case medical and surgical patients and outpatients.
We want to make sure that you are kept updated about every step of the project work to make sure you know about the exciting challenges and how things are developing.
