Public invited to view hospital energy centre plans

Proposed plans for the new energy centre at the University Hospital of North Tees are set to go on display.

Members of the public are invited to view the plans and speak to staff from the architects, engineers and the trust’s estates team, in the main concourse at the University Hospital of North Tees, on Thursday 7 July between 2pm and 8pm.

The plans will be available to view at the hospital, where people can leave their comments until 3 August.

The new energy centre is part of the trust’s investment plans, after successfully securing £25m last year to carry out much needed investment in the trust’s infrastructure, which will secure the longer term future of the hospital.

Peter Mitchell, deputy director for support services at the trust said: “Before we finalise and submit the proposals to Stockton Borough Council, we want to give people the opportunity to talk to the estates team and review the design. This will provide people with a better understanding of the proposals and give them a chance to give us their comments.

“As parts of the hospital, particularly the boilers, heating plant and electrical plant, are now nearly 50 years old we need to replace them to ensure that services remain safe and reliable and able to maintain the operational effectiveness of the hospital.

“We have therefore developed proposals to replace the existing boiler room with a new energy centre which will be more reliable, more energy efficient and more environmentally friendly.”

Staff, members of the public and other interested parties can also view the proposed plans below and send their comments to communications@nth.nhs.uk
