20 February – 1 March: disruption at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital (GRH)

17 Feb 2023, 12:40 p.m.

Disruption due to building work at GRH will affect vehicle access to the Main Atrium entrance

From 20 February – 1 March 2023

To install critical infrastructure for the IGIS Hub, we’re bringing in a large crane that will be lifted over the front of the Atrium and placed on the roads in front of the entrance. This means that access to the ED and main Atrium will be disrupted.

Parking outside the Atrium will NOT be available at this time. This may cause congestion around the site and you may wish to allow extra time to get to your appointments.

Atrium users (including Outpatient and Paediatric appointments)

  • For vehicle access to the Atrium (drop-off), this means accessing the atrium via other routes; for example, the Therapies Entrance including disabled parking (access via Beacon House entrance). Disabled car parking is available as marked on the map.
  • For pedestrian access, this means following the green path indicated on the map
  • Patient transport ambulances dropping/picking up patients for outpatient appointments will drop them at the Therapies entrance

Emergency Department (ED) users

  • Ambulances: normal route – unaffected by these works
  • Pedestrians: follow signs and see the map below

Internal corridor closures (ground and first floor of the atrium) 21–28 February

Three corridors will be closed while the crane disruption continues as cranes will be lifting over the building. This affects the corridor on the ground floor with the large timelapse photograph, the first-floor corridor between AMU and first-floor Outpatients, and the corridor from the Atrium (by Costa) to Radiology 1. Signage will be in place. Please ask one of our volunteer team for help if you are unable to find your way. This applies from 8am - 6pm on weekdays only.
