WORK is underway to improve parts of St Mary’s Hospital.
Alverstone ward is to become a 15 bed, elective orthopaedic ward, while Luccombe ward is to be made a 22 bed orthopaedic emergency ward.
The reconfiguration is to be carried out in stages to reduce disruption, according to an Isle of Wight NHS spokesman.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) the car park and road outside The Mottistone and surrounding areas is to be re-surfaced, however the main hospital entrance will not be affected.
New lifts are being installed in the main block, during which time only one lift will be available. That work is due to be completed by the end of March.

David, they have their own area now, you have just got to get a permit, which is free when you have treatment.

I hope the improvements won't be too inconvenient for all in the hospital.
