Elimination of Dormitories


Elimination of Dormitories

The ‘Elimination of Dormitories’ project is part of a wider £400 million, UK-wide investment to improve facilities for mental health patients by removing shared sleeping quarters.

This project will specifically improve facilities for Worcestershire patients, providing private, en-suite bedrooms at the Worcestershire Royal Hospital to improve their safety, privacy and dignity.

Works encompass the demolition and reconstruction of two, single-storey wards, Holt and Athelon, which form part of the existing Elgar Unit, to create a total of 30 new en-suite rooms, including the provision of accessible accommodation on each ward.

Each ward will also have access to a newly refurbished courtyard area, as well as living and kitchen areas for patients.

The scheme is being developed to a BREEAM Very Good standard.
