3:00pm Tuesday 12th March 2013 in News
THE Mayor of Bournemouth saw how some of his appeal funds would be spent when he viewed Bournemouth Hospital’s Jigsaw building plans.
Cllr Phil Stanley-Watts, who chose the Jigsaw Appeal as one of his four mayoral charities, was given a preview of the proposed new building and walked through the proposed patient journey from car park to treatment room.
The new 2,000 square meter Jigsaw building will bring together oncology, haematology, gynaecology, breast care and early pregnancy in two new units.
It will be built using the funds from both the Jigsaw Appeal for cancer and blood disorders and the appeal for women, along with significant NHS investment.
Cllr Stanley-Watts said: “I welcome this consultation and the links with the community in bringing this project forward.
“This new building will be state of the art and will benefit the community immensely.
“It offers a significant step forward in providing service and keeps the wellbeing of patients in mind.
“It will be second to none.
“The Jigsaw Appeal is one of my four mayoral charities and I think I’ve chosen well.
“I’ve been involved in fundraising over a number of years and know an awful lot of hard work has gone into this.
“The outcome will have fantastic opportunities for the community.”
The plans will be on show at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital from tomorrow until Tuesday, March 26.
The plans will then be submitted to the council.
A member of the design team will be available to discuss the plans with the public at the following times – tomorrow from 1pm-3pm, Thursday, from 11am-1pm, Monday, March 18 from 1pm-3pm and Wednesday, March 20 from 3pm-5pm.
David Rumbold, project manager for the hospital trust, said: “The feedback we have had so far has been invaluable and we encourage members of the public to drop in and view the plans and let us know their thoughts.”
