New state-of-the-art new children’s unit at North Devon District Hospital

The latest phase of the £1million refurbishment of the Ladywell Unit for women and children was compelted in 2012, providing a new Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU).

The project brings together services for women, babies and children, which have previously been housed in different parts of the hospital site.  It includes a purpose-built children’s assessment unit and high dependency unit, state-of-the-art equipment including a cardiac monitoring system, school, play and overnight family rooms, improved facilities for parents and a new resource room for doctor training.

Further upgrade works are due to commence to the Paediatric Outpatients and Bassett Ward in summer 2013.  Randall Simmonds provide Quantity Surveying and CDM Co-ordinator Services.
