MEL Health and Safety Consultants

NHS Peterborough Hospital

Client : Brookfield Europe

M.E.L. have been entrusted to act as CDM Coordinator for the development of Peterborough hospital, part of a £300 million Health Investment Plan. Our participation involves ensuring that all those who carry out design work on the new Acute Hospital and Mental Health Unit (together with the Integrated Care Centre on the site of the existing Peterborough District Hospital) collaborate and pay adequate attention to the need to reduce risk wherever possible.

In preparing the pre-construction information we have drawn together the project-specific details obtained from the client and designers during the early planning stages; as well as examining all the available information to identify the key health and safety issues involved in the project.

The 910,000 square feet (approx 84,500 square metres) Acute Hospital includes 762 in-patient beds and 22 operating theatres, the Mental Health Unit accommodates 102 beds, the Integrated Care Centre provides 40 specialist rehabilitation beds, to serve the population of Greater Peterborough and South West Lincolnshire. The modern site will even feature an air ambulance helipad.
