To make way for the new ICU/HDU, other offices and services on the 5th Floor are being relocated to other levels of the
October 2016 Progress Report: The bulk of the supporting relocation works are now completed, with the last relocation - that of Ward 5B to Level 3 of the Ward Block - due to take place in early November.
The project team is in the final stages of detailed design and expect to be out for tender in late November/early December.
