Hillingdon Hospital is enjoying a little lift this week as part of its £12m revamp.
The hospital in Pield Heath Road, Hillingdon, has employed a crane to lift in the modules that will make up the new Acute Medical Unit building on the site.
But even the tall bit of kit did not outreach over the distinctive - some say ugly - central tower of the hospital campus which is a feature of the west London skyline in this area, and from where this shot was taken.
The £12.4m development will sit next to the hospital’s established A&E department, and will have 46 beds plus a range of acute services on site, allowing patients to remain in one place during their stay rather than having to be taken to verious departments around the hospital.
Acute and emergency services are undergoing a transformation and the A&E department has also recently been given a facelift.
The two-pronged approach to emergency and urgent care includes paediatric emergency admissions, a walk-in centre for urgent but non-emergency cases and an endoscopy unit.
It will be formally opened next January.
