St Helier Hospital is being upgraded thanks to a multi-million pound development. The £12 million project on B and C blocks will include 133 windows being replaced, the roof repaired and insulated and a new concrete render added to the outside of the building.
This work will help prevent heat loss, protecting the environment, saving money and keeping patients and staff safer and warmer.
Lib Dem Councillor Ruth Dombey, Leader of Sutton Council, said: “It is thanks to Sutton Council that money the Borough has spent on buying land from the Trust in Belmont has been invested in the hospital building, rather than being snatched by the Government.
“We will continue to work with the Trust to get the best health services possible for all our residents.”
Local Lib Dem Councillor Martin Gonzalez said: “Bringing these blocks up to scratch is a great step in making sure St Helier is fit for purpose, with better facilities to complement the excellent staff.”
