The project will include the replacement of the footpath and changes to the drop-off area to help improve the appearance of the streetscape and make it easier for patients to access the hospital building. It is expected to be completed by the summer.

Work will begin on Wednesday 24 February to remove the wall which creates the current drop-off area in front of the hospital and this is expected to be completed by Friday 5 March.

During this time, the drop-off area at the front of the hospital will be closed and relocated to the car park where stays of thirty minutes or less will be free of charge. Patients and visitors will need to validate their parking tickets at main reception before departure.
