Our Future Hospital Plans: A new Urgent and Emergency Care Centre

Stuart on a Teams call

We have exciting plans to develop Derriford Hospital, starting with a new Urgent and Emergency Care Centre.

We have been shortlisted alongside 20 other Trusts - 4 in total within Devon & Cornwall - as part of the New Hospital programme (formerly HIP2), to develop our business case for investment into our estate. In phase one, our focus will be on improved provision for our urgent and emergency care services.

The New Hospital programmes in Plymouth, North Devon and Torbay will form an integral part of Devon’s Long Term Plan. As part of this, we are working together across the county’s health system and wider to ensure these exciting building schemes benefit patients from Devon and Cornwall.

We wanted to share our plans with you. Our clinically-driven design has been informed over several years by best practice and through listening to the views of our patients and staff.

Now, we want to ask for your views. Given the lockdown we are in, we thought the best way to do this might be to share a video with you about our plans and then ask for your thoughts.



Then we would like to ask you to please complete a few short questions here to share your views:

Thank you for your time. We hope you like the plans we have to date and we look forward to getting your feedback.
