A £100,000 investment to repair and upgrade pathways at the University Hospital of Hartlepool has now been completed.
Patients and visitors are now benefitting from widened foothpaths around the hospital. The project has also replaced steps with a new ramp, making the hospital’s MRI unit more accessible.
Deepak Dwarakanath is chief medical officer for the Trust. He said: “We’re committed in making sure our Hartlepool site continues to provide the best possible healthcare for our communities.
“Upgrading pavements may seem a small step. But it’s already having huge benefits and improving accessibility for our patients and visitors.”
This latest investment project follows a £1 million upgrade to the hospital’s fire alarm system and the £720,000 replacement of the hospital’s roof last year.
