Roberta Fuller, Head of Hospital Reconfiguration at Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust, said:
“RCHT is delighted to be working in partnership with BAM on the new MRI suite and Haematology / Oncology Unit. This new building will be of great benefit to the people of Cornwall; providing important diagnostic and treatment services in a modern, high quality environment.
“One of the reasons for selecting BAM to work with us at RCHT was their extensive experience and reach within the construction industry. Being able to source the best possible advice and expertise in a timely manner has been critical in the design and ongoing delivery of this project. These new facilities will provide a much improved space for both patients and staff”.
Sarah Caskey, Clinical Matron at the Trust, said:
“Having worked within cancer nursing care for 25 years I am delighted and honoured to have been involved from the start of this project and to be part of providing a new ward for the Haematology and Oncology patients of Cornwall. Nursing and medical staff, along with patients, have contributed to the design of the ward and acute oncology assessment area. We will have an increase in specialised isolation rooms and overall bed provision. Myself and my nursing team are excited at this opportunity to be able provide the highest standards of care with the most up to date facilities and environment for our patients”.
