Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust have submitted plans to Calderdale Council requesting planning permission for developments at Calderdale Royal Hospital.
The plans include a new Accident and Emergency Department, additional inpatient wards, and a new car park. The new A&E and wards will be linked to the existing hospital and located off Godfrey Road.
The car park will be located at the front of the current hospital on Dryclough Lane. Electric charging points will be available in the new car park to promote sustainability for the future.
It is hoped that subject to planning approval, the building of the new car park will start in 2022, and the new hospital buildings in 2023.
Philip Lewer, Trust Chair said:
“This is very much an ongoing journey to ensure that Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust and its partners can provide the best hospital and community healthcare for patients and families for future generations.”
Craig Whittaker MP said:
"These developments at Calderdale Royal Hospital are in the process to provide the best healthcare possible to all our local residents."
