he Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) has been made a regional surge centre, offering care to the sickest Covid-19 patients from across the region. To help facilitate this, our Building Solutions team from Drayton, are supporting the NHS through the creation of a new isolation ward in the grounds of the hospital. This will help to expand critical care capacity and free up bed spaces for incoming patients. A second emergency department was already opened earlier this month.
The new isolation ward will provide a further 9 beds, equipped with ventilators for critically ill patients sparked by the virus outbreak.
The team are currently undertaking all the enabling works, ensuring the site which sits outside the East Atrium, is ready for the delivery of the modular isolation unit in the coming weeks. Work is also being carried out on the new emergency access road and the construction of a link corridor for access to and from the main hospital.
We continue to be very proud to be able to help play our part in supporting the NHS, at this challenging time.
