Between Friday 21 May and Monday 24 May, work will be undertaken to install brand new modular operating theatres in the Women & Children’s quarter of the Southmead Hospital site.
While the crane and the modules are arriving on site over this weekend, the Monks Park Avenue entrance to site will be intermittently out of use. To avoid disruption to your journey to our hospital site during this period, please use either the Southmead Road entrance or the Dorian Way entrance, both shown in the map images below.
The image above is a 3D example of how the modules will look, generated by Module Co who have engineered the modules and will be installing them.
Brecon car park will also be closed for the duration of the works, as this is where the crane will be set-up. If you need to drive to our site, please make use of one of the other public car parks.
Access to the COVID-testing marquee just off Monks Park Way will not be affected, so if you need access to this area please attend as usual.
Gynaecology outpatients and early pregnancy clinic based in Cotswold Clinic will remain open on Friday 21 and Monday 24 and there is no change to these services.
Cotswold Ward will be moving into the Brunel building from Thursday evening until Monday evening while the new theatres are crane lifted in over the ward. If you are attending the ward for a pre-arranged appointment please go to the Brunel Building Gate 32B.
If you have a gynaecological emergency then you should contact your GP or attend the Emergency Department if needed. If you are under our care for ongoing treatment then please contact us on the usual normal numbers.
