Isle of Wight Hospital Project

Four projects designed to improve the islands health services are planned by the Isle of Wight NHS Trust. Kier Construction have been appointed to carry out these plans.

Construction of a high dependancy care unit designed to increase the hospital’s capacity to provide specialised services will be included in hospital works. An emergency care floor will also be created, co-locating the existing emergency department, together with urgent treatment centre and short stay facilities, access to diagnostics and improving treatment room size.

A new 18-bed acute ward is planned which will separate the planned and emergency inpatient care resulting in the better use of beds.

A combined mental health and community hub to provide treatment and talking therapy rooms, together with ‘tele-hubs’ for medicine appointments are planned for Newport High Street.

This project will ‘transform healthcare’ on the Isle of Wight.
