St Luke’s Hospital is set to undergo significant changes as construction commences for its state-of-the-art Surgical Day Case Unit. The construction work, scheduled to start on Monday, June 12, is expected to cause some disruption on site. However, the hospital assures patients and visitors that necessary measures will be in place to minimise inconvenience.

During this period, individuals visiting St Luke’s Hospital for appointments or as visitors are advised to allow extra time for parking. Temporary adjustments to the parking arrangements might result in minor delays. However, the hospital management has made efforts to mitigate any inconvenience caused by clearly indicating alternative parking options through signage.

Patients and visitors will be directed towards the designated Pay & Display areas as well as disabled parking facilities. The hospital aims to ensure that parking spaces are easily accessible and readily available despite the ongoing construction.

The anticipated completion of the Surgical Day Case Unit is set for next year, demonstrating a significant £18 million investment. This substantial project aims to address the pressing issue of the local surgery backlog by increasing the hospital’s surgical capacity. The new unit will play a vital role in reducing the waiting time for patients in need of surgical procedures, consequently improving overall healthcare services in the community.

St Luke’s Hospital sincerely apologises for any inconvenience caused by the temporary parking arrangements. The management is committed to minimising disruptions and appreciates the patience and understanding of all patients, visitors, and staff during this period of construction.
