Notice of building work and noise at Blackpool Victoria Hospital, Thursday, 11 November

Construction partners for the Emergency Village and Critical Care development, IHP, will be pouring the next concrete slab for Level 2 of the new Critical Care and SDEC building on Thursday, 11 November. They successfully completed the roof pour on Monday, 8 November with very little disruption to the services.

Please note that this floor may be slightly noisier due to its proximity to the existing building’s occupied floors. The noise element mainly occurs after the concrete has been poured and allowed to set as it will then need to be power floated. This involves a certain amount of noise.

Once this process starts it cannot be stopped

It is hoped that IHP will be finished by 10pm, but dependant on the weather, this time might have to be extended.

Signs have been created for the nearby wards and ear plugs are available in preparation for Thursday.

We sincerely apologise for this inconvenience. Please contact the Patient Experience team if the building work is disrupting your, or a loved one’s rest.
