THE HOSPITAL STERILISATION AND DECONTAMINATION UNIT (HSDU) IS A KEY PART OF THE DELIVERY OF SURGICAL SERVICES AT THE GRANGE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, A NEW SPECIALIST CRITICAL CARE CENTRE TO SERVE THE ANEURIN BEVAN UNIVERSITY HEALTH BOARD AREA AT LLANFRECHFA, CWMBRAN IN WALES.
The HSDU will be a purpose built unit adjacent to the Specialist and Critical Care Centre (SCCC).
By combining the Health Board’s two current HSD sites, the project will provide HSD services that are efficient, effective and maximise the use of available resources. The HSDU improves functionality and relationships between hospital departments and reduces delays in the supply of instrumentation.
Built on the site of a disused former canteen and storage facility, the location will provide improved access for patient, laundry and service vehicles and is well connected with all areas of the wider hospital site.
As well as provision for the technically advanced decontamination cycle of reusable medical devices, the unit will include a reception, offices, changing facilities, staff beverage and rest areas and training and seminar space.
We are proud of our award-winning and shortlisted projects throughout 2020. Despite an unusual year, our teams have continued to produce fantastic and innovative work that has invited significant recognition from awards bodies across sectors and throughout the UK.
