FINAL plans to redevelop a dilapidated hospital are set to be shown to the public.

Frimley Health has revealed plans to host an open event at Heatherwood Hospital to show the public the final plans for the rebuilding of the ‘crumbling’ Ascot hospital.

Members of the public are invited to the Apollo Ward of Heatherwood Hospital at 3pm on Thursday, May 18 to view the latest rebuilding plans that hope to secure its future.

Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, which runs the hospital, wants to invest in a new £90m hospital on the Heatherwood site after it was decided the current buildings are unaffordable to maintain and not configured to meet modern standards.

On Thursday, May 18, key members of the hospital and development team will be on hand to showcase the plans to visitors.

Plans include a new state of the art building in what is currently part of the woodland on the site, and the sale of land for housing.

Frimley Health has made a number of alterations to its original plans following feedback from well-attended public health events held at Ascot Racecourse last year and from other consultations with neighbours and affected parties.

The upcoming public meeting will be the last opportunity for the community to see and hear about the final plans before they go to councillors from the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead for a decision.

If approved, the new hospital will include six operating theatres, 40 inpatient beds plus private patient spaces and day case and endoscopy facilities.
