Lincoln IPU Refurbishment and Re-opening Update

26th August 2022

The Director of Patient Care and Ward Manager attended a site visit to the Inpatient Unit on Nettleham Road the week of 22nd August 2022.

Work is moving at pace and proposed completion targets remain very positive. We are approximately two thirds of the way into the project and huge differences and improvements are now very visible.

Feedback received post meeting from the Project Manager, Stephen, (partner with Thornton Firkin), confirms we are on track and gives us assurance that welcoming patients and families back to inpatient care is not too far away.The top of the Inpatient Unit in Lincoln against blue sky

“Thornton Firkin LLP are very pleased to continue their relationship with St. Barnabas, assisting with their refurbishment of the In-Patient Unit. Utilising the same design team from the Boston Wellbeing Centre project, together with an excellent relationship and assistance with the dedicated estates and clinical teams has ensured that the development of the project is progressing well towards completion of the building works by the end of October.”

The main contractor, Miller Knight of Mansfield, are being very pro-active in their approach when faced with difficulties associated with an existing building. The project team will shortly be reviewing a completed room to set the quality standard throughout the building.
