Multiple schemes completed for Sheffield Health & Social Care Trust
We’ve been working closely with Sheffield Health & Social Care NHS Foundation Trust to reconfigure and upgrade existing spaces to improve patient care and the way in which services are provided.
Last year we completed on two schemes for the Trust – Beech Cottage at Woodland View Nursing Home and Burbage Ward at the Michael Carlisle Centre – with additional works to the latter in the pipeline for 2022.
Following the release of a new NHS initiative to create several ‘step-down’ units within nursing homes, I&G were appointed to upgrade an existing space at Woodland View Nursing Home. The remodelling of this space now provides a home away from home for those who are medically fit to be discharged but unable to leave due to delays to their accommodation.
Woodland View Nursing Home is one of the Trust’s specialist dementia care homes and because of the improvements made to Beech Cottage, 40 people with complex or enhanced dementia will be cared for.
Michael Carlisle Centre
Burbage Ward is a female only acute mental health inpatient ward which has 16 beds.
The Trust appointed I&G to undertake significant improvements to the ward to remove dormitories, refurbish clinic and treatment rooms, remove ligature anchor points, and improve the general environment to create a more welcoming, comfortable experience for patients. Every service user admitted to the ward has a care plan which outlines specific details of the treatment and support they will be offered, and this new reformed space will aid this process to make patients feel more at ease when receiving their care.
Refurbishment to the second floor of the Burbage Ward was a continuation of the great work concluded on the Beech Cottage project on behalf of the Trust.
