Tilbury Douglas deployed a fast track modern methods of construction (MMC) approach to support the Trust at Walsall Manor Hospital to alleviate Covid-19 and winter-related pressures. As an existing partner to Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust through the new ProCure22 (P22) Emergency Department development, Tilbury Douglas was tasked by the Trust to undertake a number of fast track conversions and adaptions of existing spaces to manage increased patient volumes.

The fast track works involved the refurbishment and remodelling of the existing Clinical Measurement Unit (CMU) into a new Frailty Emergency Service unit that includes 12 treatment bays along with supporting accommodation such as clean and dirty utilities, cleaners’ room, staff rest area and an accessible WC. The works also included the provision of modular buildings that have been sited in the hospital courtyard areas and linked to the existing ward buildings to help increase bed provision.
