PEH plans in

Friday 02 December 2022

Plans for the next phase of work to rebuild the Princess Elizabeth Hospital have been submitted, and if approved that work will start in 2024.

Phase one is already underway - with construction work visible from the Emergency Department side of the hospital.

Phase two will see more substantial work on the other side of the hospital site including extensions, refurbishment and construction work happening linking together the new and older parts of the PEH.

Jan Coleman is responsible for the PEH work, as Director of Hospital Modernisation. She said submitting the plans is a landmark part of the process in itself.

"As I have said before, building a hospital is an extremely complex programme. Getting to this stage where we are submitted Phase 2 plans for approval is a significant milestone. I am extremely grateful to the staff from HSC and the MSG who have participated in many discussions and workshops that have resulted in the preferred design being identified."

Ms Coleman has previously explained that the Hospital Modernisation Programme has been developed to roll out in phases so that any disruption caused by the work is minimised. She had also previously said that the programme will be completed within a seven year time frame.

The Phase two designs include work on a new build which will eventually house Guernsey's maternity, Neo natal intensive care unit, the paediatric ward, a private ward, an outpatients unit and other facilities.

The islands Emergency Department, breast unit and fracture clinic will be moved into existing spaces which are being redesigned for their specific needs.

The plans also include: 

  • A 3-floor extension built in the location of the current main entrance.

  • Significant refurbishment of existing spaces to update facilities and rearrange and improve the overall layout, and 

  • A new main entrance linking all 3 levels making access to any area of the hospital easier.
