Following extensive local engagement, exciting plans to develop Crawley Hospital are being taken forward by Crawley Clinical Commissioning Group which is investing in improvements and expanding services at the site.
The redevelopment is a response to patient engagement, bringing more services in Crawley under one roof, and ensuring more services are available closer to home.
The plans include refurbishment of the Urgent Care Centre, an extended Clinical Assessment Unit, expanded area for treating children, and a larger reception area to ensure the best possible experience for local patients.
Crawley CCG Clinical Chief Officer, Dr Amit Bhargava, said: “The planned improvements will help save hundreds of patients each year from travelling to hospitals further afield.
“It is part of our commitment to provide services closer to the communities they serve.”
The Urgent Care Centre is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. No appointment is necessary - you will be seen by either a doctor or nurse to treat a wide range of injuries and illnesses from sprains and strains, broken bones, minor burns and scalds to minor head and eye injuries, bites and stings.
The plans also include a new ward with 26 beds for people who need hospital care but are not so unwell they need treatment at a bigger, acute hospital such as East Surrey. The ward includes art therapy unit, gymnasium and assisted kitchen facilities.
Construction work is set to be completed early 2017. Watch the video and view images below to find out more. 'TUCC' - Transforming Urgent Care Crawley
