The Rheumatology Centre at the Haywood Hospital currently welcomes patients from North Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Cheshire. The catchment area has a population of over 500,000 patients.
The centre deals with the investigation, diagnosis, management and treatment of patients with arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions many of which are chronic conditions which require lifelong treatment.
The Haywood Hospital is pioneering in many different aspects of rheumatology, the first community rheumatologist was appointed here and the first development of a computerised drug monitoring system was at the Haywood Hospital.
The Rheumatology Centre also has an active research team, known nationally and internationally for its work.
Haywood Hospital Outpatients Building Redevelopment Proposition
As part of its commitment to investing in the future of local health and care, MPFT is seeking to replace the existing outpatients building at Haywood Hospital. The current building contains Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) within its roof. This is a form of prefabricated concrete plank which has become outdated and a national programme is underway to remove RAAC from all NHS buildings.
Whilst MPFT has been allocated funding by NHS England to carry out this work as part of this national programme, the Trust is seeking to replace the entire outpatients building to create a modern, fit for the future facility that will support the best delivery of care for patients. This will require additional funding, sourced from local capital allocations.
The next phase of this project will be the demolition of the existing outpatients building. Armac demolition has been appointed by MPFT to undertake this work, which is due to commence on 9 August and is anticipated to take approximately eight weeks.
Armac is committed to ensuring these works take place with as minimal disruption to residents as is reasonably practicable.
Works will take place during the following hours:
- Monday-Friday – 8am-6.30pm
- Saturday – 8am-2pm
- No work will take place on Sundays or bank holidays.
Measures are being put in place to control dust and noise on site to avoid negatively impacting surrounding areas. The building will be taken apart piece by piece, avoiding damage by extracting carefully what is required for recycling and to minimise debris and disturbance.
Whilst the works are ongoing, there will be no parking on High Lane or Haywood Road outside Haywood Hospital and Haywood Academy. Site access will be limited and turning will be via the shared access to the Haywood Hospital car park. A one-way system is being put in place to minimise congestion. More information on this can be found on the site map image on the next page.
