Salisbury Hospital is planning a series of extensive updates to its electrical systems, along with other significant upgrades.
The new work has been made possible thanks to £3.4 million worth of government funding awarded to the Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust. The funding is part of the £45.8 million granted to 21 different NHS trusts throughout the UK’s south west for 199 essential maintenance schemes.
The projects involve the refurbishment of existing buildings and the creation of all-new facilities, enabling hospitals to provide vital services to patients and improving onsite operations. The replacement of hospital lifts, fire safety improvements, enhanced ventilation systems and updates to electrical infrastructure are just some of the key areas covered by the work.
Commercial organisations and public institutions requiring electrical services in Chester, Salisbury and other UK cities can rely on qualified electrical contractors to handle both major and minor work and ensure systems are properly maintained and running smoothly.
Chief Operating Officer for the Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust, Andy Hyett, commented on how pleased the district hospital was to benefit from funding, and discussed the upcoming work onsite:
“This includes vital projects such as waterworks, improving the electrical and telecommunications infrastructure, improving our air handling unit and general maintenance of windows, roofs and lifts, along with other essential works. This will help ensure that we can continue to provide our patients, staff and visitors with the facilities they need.”
The substantial upgrades to Salisbury District Hospital have a scheduled completion date of March 2021.
