Princess Alexandra Fracture Clinic approved

Medical Architecture has secured planning consent for a new Fracture Clinic at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow, Essex, which will enable the hospital’s orthopaedic department to expand the range of services provided locally.

The practice said: “By carefully inserting the lightweight new building on redundant space between buildings, the new development increases the density and asset value of the hospital infrastructure.”

“The clinic will provide X-ray services, consultation, treatment spaces, and plaster setting, as well as ancillary clinical support and staff relaxation rooms. Medical Architecture co-designed the layout with clinic consultants who preferred ‘consult and exam’ rooms laid out in a ‘butterfly’ configuration, with an examination room either side of a single consultation room. This arrangement ‘provides an efficient modern clinical environment to support excellent NHS acute services’.

Bob Wills, director at Medical Architecture, said: “This modest project illustrates how good planning, architecture, and technical design, can deliver facilities which expand clinical capacity and improve operational efficiency in a complex hospital setting. Patients and staff will benefit from this new purposeful, accessible, and well-ordered building.”

The project is currently out to tender.
