St Thomas' hospital modernisation
The East Wing of St Thomas' Hospital has been a feature of the Westminster skyline since the 1960s. But it now needs repair and modernisation. The project is part of the Trust's 2020 vision – creating the best possible environment for their patients, their visitors and their staff. New energy efficient cladding and replacement windows will improve the patient experience, significantly reduce our carbon footprint and save costs.
The hospital is holding a Design Competition for the East Wing Recladding Scheme in conjunction with RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) to select the best design for the project and they would like to invite you to comment on the proposals.
An exhibition of the six shortlisted designs will be on display during August at various venues on both hospital sites and in the community. The details of the venues and dates are listed below. Hospital staff will be on hand to answer questions and there will be a feedback form so that you can tell them what you think of the designs.
9th & 10th August Atrium 1, Southwark Wing, Guy’s Hospital, Great Maze Pond SE1 9RT
11th - 15th August Central Hall, St Thomas’ Hospital, Westminster Bridge Road, SE1 7EH
17th & 18th August Durning Library, 167 Kennington Lane, SE11 4HF
The Trust want to hear views from our local community as well as our staff and patients, so please come and tell them what you think.
