First outpatient services have moved into the new extension, The Hanbury. Rheumatology and Physiotherapy outpatients services have moved to floors 5 and 6 of the new facility, which is at the front of the Royal Sussex County Hospital. Nuclear Medicine and the Radiopharmacy services will move into the lower floors of the Hanbury Extension early in 2017. These moves complete the clinical decant programme for Stage 1 of the 3Ts Redevelopment and clears the way for the construction of the Stage 1 Building.
The Hanbury Extension is a modular building and will stay in place for five years whilst the first of the 3Ts Redevelopment’s permanent buildings is constructed. A second new modular building, the Courtyard Extension, is already open. It is home to the three wards that moved as part of the preparations for the redevelopment.
Both temporary buildings offer a far better care environment than was available in the services’ original locations.
