Bermudian delegation to learn about the building of the Royal Derby Hospital

11 June 2012

A delegation from the Atlantic islands of Bermuda is visiting the Royal Derby Hospital tomorrow (Tuesday 12 June) to learn about the experience of building a brand new hospital.

Paget Health Services is a consortium of Bermudian and international companies which was formed to design, build, finance and maintain a new facility at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital in Bermuda. The facility will include 90 single bed en-suite patient rooms, a day surgery unit, ambulatory care facilities, diagnostic imaging services, a new A&E and a new utility plant.

They will be meeting with Derby Hospitals staff members who were involved in the development and build of the Royal Derby Hospital, which received its official opening in April 2010. The visitors will see how departments, including A&E, renal and day case surgery, are run, as well as hearing about how Derby Hospitals managed areas including patient care, construction, human resources and moving key services.

Nick Seed, who oversaw the Royal Derby Hospital development and move, said: “We are delighted to be sharing our knowledge of building a new hospital for the eventual benefit of patients in Bermuda. The Royal Derby Hospital is a state-of-the-art healthcare facility and something we’re really proud of, and if other hospitals can benefit from our experiences then we’re happy to work with them.  

“We’ll be offering advice on the various stages of a build programme, using our experiences to talk about what went well and any pitfalls and problems they may come across.”
