An open day will be held on Tuesday August 14, at the old Day Rehab Room, Ground Floor, Whitby Hospital, 3pm to 6pm, where residents will be able to drop in.

NHS Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been working with partner organisations on the planning process of the £11.9 million project.

This follows design development led by principal supply chain partner BAM Construction and architectural partner Medical Architecture.

Paul Cleminson, construction director for BAM, said: “We have been deeply engaged in the collaborative process of developing buildable designs that meet both the medical and users’ aspirations but also keep the budget and programme realistic and achievable.

"It is always exciting to see something as complex and important as a hospital take shape and these public events are an important part of the process for us.”

Representatives from North Yorkshire County Council, Humber NHS Foundation Trust and site owners, NHS Property Services will also attend.

"See the project coming to life"

Dr George Campbell, local GP and CCG Governing Body member, said: “We, like local residents, have been waiting for this for such a long time.

"We’re really excited to share the latest designs for the redeveloped hospital which include staff and public feedback from a similar event held in March last year.

"There are still many complex elements of the project to be resolved and we are working hard with BAM to move further ahead.

“That is why we are so pleased to have reached this stage where you can really see the project coming to life. This is a free drop-in event so please come along at any time to hear the very latest.”
