Broadmoor opening finally in sight

Broadmoor opening finally in sight

West London NHS Trust has finally taken formal possession of the new Broadmoor Hospital following months of delays.

Originally due to have opened earlier this spring, the facility is now scheduled to launch later in the year or early next year.

The project, designed by Oxford Architects and LDA Design, faced delays under chief contractor, Kier. But, following the trust’s recently decision to approve takeover of the five new buildings, work can now begin on preparations to transfer patients currently being cared for in Britain’s oldest high-secure psychiatric hospital.

Carolyn Regan, trust chief executive, said: “This is a critical step towards the delivery of significant improvements to the way in which we are able to care for patients in Broadmoor Hospital.

“This move – from a hospital which is more than 150 years old to one which has been purpose built to provide a safe, therapeutic environment for the delivery of care fit for the 21st Century – focuses on hope and recovery and the trust’s commitment to supporting patients to take a more-active role in their care.”

Ben Stevenson, operations director for Kier Major Projects, added: “We’re delighted to hand over the first phase of the Broadmoor Hospital redevelopment programme.

“This is a crucial step towards providing a modernised and safe environment and we look forward to seeing patients and staff move into the new facilities.”

Built in the grounds to the west of the existing hospital, the new Broadmoor has 16 wards.

Its 234 beds will provide accommodation for 210 patients, with 24 flexible beds.

As well as the three new ward buildings and the entrance building, the new site includes a central building which will house hospital therapies.

Other features include spacious ward areas which maximise the use of natural light; clear lines of sight to ensure staff and patient safety; and a layout designed to enable the supervised movement of patients.
