ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2017

Project Detail

Leicester Royal Infirmary Emergency Department - Phase One, Leicester

Large Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2017 Finalist

There are 32 major bays with telescopic sliding doors to safeguard patient dignity and improve the control of infections.

A dozen resuscitation bays have an embedded laboratory for improved testing and immediate access to a CT scanner and x-rays. An electronic, paperless system has also iproved efficiency.

Dedicated ambulance entrances now split the flow of adult and children arrivals, with separate waiting areas.

The team used design to address the ageing population by creating the UK’s first frailty-friendly emergency department. It also has an integrated mental health unit.

Project Overview

The LRI’s Emergency Department was designed as the most efficient and up to date A&E facility in Europe

The existing emergency department, one of the busiest in the country, was landlocked and would not meet the demands of five to ten years’ time.

The previous department was designed for 100,000 patients per year – the new one can accommodate 270,000, helping to tackle overcrowding and waiting times.
