Hospital Estate Development at HRI


After lots of planning, work has begun on the HRI site to demolish dilapidated old buildings to improve the efficiency of the estate whilst enabling the site for our new Accident and Emergency department.

We have undertaken significant planning for this to ensure we can safely demolish buildings no longer needed and to construct a whole new building - whilst ensuring that the hospital continues to operate as usual.  Every step has been planned with the aim of minimising disruption to our patients, visitors, colleagues, and our neighbours.


We would advise all patients and visitors to arrive a little bit earlier than usual.

You may have to park in different area, and this could take you longer to get to the right part of the hospital for your appointment.


You should only enter the hospital via the main entrance as our South Drive entrance will be closed.

Car drop off points for Same Day Emergency Care (SDEC), Day Procedure Unit DPU and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) will not be available after 1st November and there will be no pedestrian access on South Drive from Acre Street.

Patients should to use the drop-off point at the main entrance. Ample parking is available within this car park, but additional car parking is also available at Acre Mills.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this work which will ultimately lead to the building of our new purpose-built A&E with all its latest digital, medical, and clinical technologies, helping to deliver the very best patient experience at HRI.
