Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Addenbrooke's Hospital Nuclear Medicine & Thrombectomy
Willmott Dixon Interiors have completed a strip-out and reconfiguration of the Nuclear Medicine and Thrombectomy wards at Addenbrooke’s Hospital for Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The Trust was in need of additional treatment space, a remodelling of their spaces and to improve patient experience.
In the Nuclear Medicine ward, the scope included the demolition and strip-out of the existing operational ward. This involved replacing existing finishes throughout both
floors, removing internal partitions to create more space and upgrades to mechanical and electrical services throughout. A new external steel staircase has also been
provided as a new fire exit route from Level 3.
Due to radiation being used as a treatment within the ward, specialist lead lined products were used in specific
areas to prevent radiation exposure.
In the Thrombectomy ward, the scope of works included demolition, strip-out and remodelling works to refresh the space and improve the environment. As well as this, we upgraded firedoors and ensured the area met modern compliance
- As well as having the potential to reduce the pressure on the NHS, these projects deliver greater consistency of patient service and environment. Patients and staff will benefit from modernised spaces.
- Work was completed within a live hospital environment with no disruption to patients.
- Installation of a staircase to provide a new fire exit route on Level 3 for the Nuclear Medicine ward
- Investment into the community to support the hospital and improve the employability of local young people
Whilst delivering the refurbishments, we invested into the local community and supported the hospital. We donated a cold cot to the NICU ward at the hospital to provide parents that have experienced a stillborn baby more time to bond with them than the usual process allows, supporting the parents in the grieving process.
We engaged with a variety of schools throughout to deepen their understanding of construction and provide career advice to the students.
