K2 successfully delivered The Stokes Urology Centre, which represents an investment of £5.5m – jointly funded by the RSCH NHS Trust and the Prostate Project Charity.
This landmark project will change how urology patients are treated at the hospital for many years to come. It represents a premium world class facility which sets the benchmark for future facilities within the NHS.
With a JV client and multi-department involvement effective stakeholder engagement was key to the success of the project – and essential in developing enduring relationships.
The RSCH Urology centre includes: five consultation rooms, three diagnostic and treatment rooms with recovery area, research laboratory, a state of the art multi-disciplinary room, lecture theatre and an external courtyard. The facility is home to many leading surgeons, doctors, specialist nurses, research staff and the Prostate Charity.
The judges commented, “This project provides a blueprint for how the NHS and charities can collaborate to provide facilities. In this case it started with one man’s (Colin Stokes MBE) wish to repay his successful cure from a cancer that is the third biggest cancer killer in the UK. The result is a state-of-the-art diagnostic facility which is world class as judged by its peers….”
Due to the inspiring, high quality environment within the building, staff morale has soared.
