Derby Hospital

Initiated through the University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust reaching out for urgent assistance to address the infamous annual ‘Winter Bed Pressure’ crisis, following a series of critical meetings, the Trust chose to proceed with our associate company ‘Catfoss’ to deliver a semi-permanent 28-bed ward facility in the shortest time possible.  This included 4 isolation rooms with en-suite bathrooms.

The 1,100sqm new ward facility was delivered on schedule and received its first patients in just 93 days from the Trust acceptance of the Catfoss proposal.

This scheme is a fine example of how we can offer diverse and innovative solutions through our various delivery partners and options.
