Date: 21 September 2023
As part of the extensive investment and improvement work to improve health care services for the island’s community for the longer term, we are upgrading the entrance to the Children’s Emergency Department to improve access for ambulances.
From Monday 4 September, in order to complete this work, we will need to restrict the movement of cars around the hospital site so that we can build a new ambulance entrance.
There will be no vehicle through route across the St Mary's site; people wanting to park in the north car park, at the front of the hospital, should use the main entrance on Parkhurst Road and everyone else will need to use the entrances on Dodnor Lane at the back of the hospital.
This work is scheduled take 5 weeks and the diversion will remain in place for this period. We apologise for any inconvenience but these temporary restrictions are necessary to ensure the safety of staff, patients and contractors.
More information about our Investing in Our Future programme can be found on our dedicated website. While we know building work can be disruptive for patients and visitors we will always work to ensure this is kept to a minimum.
