NHS Drop In Events

invites you to come along and find out more about our plans to develop a new community hospital for the East Riding on Swinemoor Lane, Beverley. The hospital will offer modern facilities for local people in a welcoming, open, landscaped setting that is sympathetic to the local rural environment of the nearby Swine Moor.

The new hospital will be a flagship development for the East Riding of Yorkshire with an emphasis on quality and innovation throughout the building programme. The proposed building design will incorporate features that make it sustainable and eco-friendly. It will also make the most of natural light and be designed in a way that provides a therapeutic environment for all visitors to the hospital.

The range of services at the new hospital include:
• Outpatients including cardiac rehabilitation service
• X ray and ultrasound department
• Minor injuries and out of hours service
• 30 bedded ward
• Neighbourhood health team base
• Therapies including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and nutrition and dietetics
• Mental health team base
and York Medical School (HYMS)
• Social services

Karen Knapton, Chairman of NHS East Riding of Yorkshire, said:

“This is a very important development, not just for Beverley but for the whole East Riding of Yorkshire and we pledged from the start to keep people informed and involved. We have been working with our lead development partner Interserve on the design of the clinical services and the look and feel of the building leading up to submitting a formal planning application later this year.

“These drop-ins are an opportunity to meet the team behind the new hospital. We want to share our ideas and hear what people have to say, and I hope as many people as possible can attend.”
