Business as usual at busy RD&E Heavitree hospital

Transfer of maternity, neonatal and gynaecology services across to the new Centre for Women’s Health at the RD&E Wonford has prompted a review of how the hospital trust can best use the Heavitree accommodation.


The building occupancy at the RD&E Heavitree site is likely to change during 2007 and 2008 as hospital services relocate to the vacated clinical and administrative areas following the opening of the Centre for Women’s Health in June.

In July 2007 Director of Facilities Linda Hall said: “Use of the space across the whole of the Heavitree site is currently under review to ensure that we make the best use of our assets and the accommodation available. We are also seizing this opportunity to ease pressure off some densely staffed areas on the Wonford site.


In the meantime it is business as usual for a significant number of services and departments continuing to operate at Heavitree including the Learning and development service, Occupational Health department, Fertility clinic, Clinical genetics, Day case theatre, outpatients departments, dietetics clinic, paediatric clinic, audiology clinic, stores, procurement, estates, housekeeping, research and development project teams and residential accommodation.


Other partner services located at Heavitree include the Devon Primary Care Trust dental access, chiropody and podiatry services; the National Artificial Eye Service, and the Devon Air Ambulance shop. Fine Fillings café remains on site for patients, staff and visitors to use.


Current car parking arrangements will continue but will also be reviewed in time to ensure the right balance between Pay and Display and allocated staff parking.
