Patients to benefit from more efficient healthcare services as plans for new £8m urology centre progress in South East England

Patients in the South East of England are set to benefit from more joined-up care as a new urology facility reaches the next stage of its development.

The £8m Urology Investigation and Treatment Centre at Princess Royal Hospital in West Sussex is one step closer to opening after the modules needed to erect the building were delivered.

With the opening scheduled for this autumn, the new estate is expected to be able to treat at least 1,000 patients every month, which is more than double what is possible now.

University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust say the upgraded facilities will allow patients to get diagnosed, treated, discharged or referred all in one visit and all under one roof.

The added efficiency will help create extra capacity within the new centre, allowing the urology team to expand, ensuring as many patients as possible can benefit.

Once opened, the urology outpatient and treatment services will transfer from Princess Royal’s main building into the new facility.

The Urology Investigation and Treatment Centre’s Capital Project Manager, Martin Glazebrook, said: “This project combines the refit of an existing building with these new modules to provide a large, purpose-designed unit for our colleagues in Urology. It’s a real pleasure to work on projects that you know will make such a difference to the experience of patients.”
