Ambulatory Radiotherapy Centre
This new three-storey facility at the Royal Oldham Hospital will provide an Ambulatory Radiotherapy Centre along with a new Haematology Department and surgical bed accommodation.
The site PM works with the hospital liaison manager to ensure site operations do not interrupt hospital procedures. Some works are readjusted to suit the adjacent pathology lab… the whole set up gives a very professional manner.Phil Power FCIOB,

Currently under construction for clients Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust and Christie NHS Foundation Trust, the centre will be capable of treating 70 people per day, enabling 18,000 treatments per year.
Working on a highly constrained site alongside occupied buildings, we liaised closely with both Trusts to avoid disruption to services and facilitate our programme. This included reaching out-of-hours working agreements to avoid disturbance to sensitive equipment in the adjacent pathology department during removal of concrete foundations.
Other enabling works included diversion of a high voltage cable and provision for creating a new substation to provide a UPS service to the centre.
Construction of the centre is the third project undertaken for the Pennine Acute Hospitals Trust following the Women’s and Children’s Unit at North Manchester General Hospital and the new Pathology Facility at Royal Oldham Hospital.
