Transforming emergency care at St Thomas’ Hospital
Our Trust is investing £20 million to create a state-of-the-art Emergency Floor on the ground floor of Lambeth Wing and East Wing at St Thomas’ Hospital. Work is being carried out in phases to minimise disruption to services.
Please note the following construction activity taking place in March:
From 23 March the Lambeth link corridor at St Thomas’, which runs from the Emergency Department (A&E) to East Wing, will close permanently to enable construction of the Emergency Floor to progress. Pedestrian access to the Emergency Department from Lambeth Palace Road will be maintained and all emergency services will continue to operate as normal.
Patients will be directed to use the hospital main entrance or Lambeth Wing to access all other departments.
The project will transform not only the Emergency Department at St Thomas’ but also the acute medical wards, improving the quality, safety and efficiency of care as well as the overall experience of patients requiring emergency treatment.
