Proposals unveiled for £196.5m developments at Calderdale Royal Hospital and Huddersfield Royal Infirmary
Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust today unveiled the latest proposals and artists’ impressions for development work and new buildings at both Huddersfield Royal Infirmary and Calderdale Royal Hospital.
They include a brand new A&E building and an essential works programme of upgrading wards and theatres at HRI and an extension of hospital buildings with an A&E, Paediatrics A&E, enhanced Intensive Care Unit and theatres at Calderdale Royal as well as a patient and staff car park.
Members of the public across the communities of Calderdale and Greater Huddersfield are being invited to share their views on the new developments proposed in advance of planning applications being submitted to the local councils of Calderdale and Kirklees in May.
The £196.5 million proposals are funded by the Department of Health and Social Care and fully supported by the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Healthcare Partnership and pending the planning permission decision, it is hoped the work could be starting this year at HRI and scheduled for completion in 2025.
The deadline to do so is Monday March 29.
The Trust’s Chair, Philip Lewer, said: “This is very much an ongoing journey to ensure we provide the best hospital healthcare for patients and families in Huddersfield and Calderdale for now and for future generations.”
