As part of the Emergency Village scheme, a project managed by Atlas BFW Management on behalf of its client, Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the contractors IHP will be undertaking remedial and refurbishment works to the external area at the front of Blackpool Victoria Hospital’s Emergency Department (ED) and the Minors ramp. These works will commence on Thursday 2 December 2021 and are planned to complete in the early new year.
During the duration of the works the areas affected will be fenced off and access for pedestrians, as it currently is, will be restricted and diversions will be in place.
The contractors will ensure that vehicle access for the Trust and Emergency Village site deliveries are available at all times. There should be no disruption caused for vehicle access, including ambulances arriving to the ED.
Once complete these works will ensure that the ramp and footpath provision for pedestrians and wheelchair use are significantly improved.
