Saint Mary’s Antenatal Service in Salford Hospital needed to move out of the hospital to make way for other services.

Due to the high service demand that Saint Mary’s antenatal team work to, they could not afford to lose any clinics as part of their move to the site. Therefore, we had to ensure that the new home for their antenatal services was ready for the service to move in to as soon as they finished their last clinic at their old location.

Our strategy team worked with Salford CCG to find a new location for the antenatal service and Lance Burn Health Centre was chosen. The site is well-situated to provide antenatal services in the heart of the Salford community.

Lance Burn Health Centre first floor would require reconfiguration to allow the antenatal team to move in so we provided initial feasibility designs and budget estimates to facilitate the business case process.

We held regular progress meetings with Salford CCG, Saint Mary’s Midwifery and Antenatal Team, Salford Royal Trust Hospital, and Manchester Foundation Trust to ensure all needs were met and stakeholders were engaged through the process.

Our designs enabled all of the clinical requirements to be met as the floor contains two scanning rooms, eight consulting rooms, an antenatal assessment unit, reception space, admin space and utility rooms. We now also provide Lance Burn Health Centre with our facilities management services. Sound project management was key to the success of this reconfiguration against very strict deadlines to ensure no clinics lost in the move.
