The new Peter Hodgkinson Centre, Lincoln

Print Friendly and PDF

Our new development to build two new acute inpatient wards at the Peter Hodgkinson Centre in Lincoln is part of our focus to provide ensuite accommodation for all our patients, finally removing outdated shared dormitory wards across all our sites.

The new wards will replace the Conolly and Charlesworth wards at our existing premises on the Lincoln County Hospital site.

The two new 19 bed wards will provide separate ensuite accommodation for our patients with ground floor access to a courtyard area for peace and quiet. The outdoor environment offers major benefits to our patients helping to support their recovery.

The design of the new wards has been shaped using feedback from patients, carers and staff as part of our ‘Building Together’ programme.

Examples include:

  • access to a quiet room/sensory area for patients who require peace and tranquillity
  • a garden area
  • carefully considering the location of the family rooms in a quieter area, away from the ward with outdoor seating for family and patient visits
  • maximising the use of natural daylight to create a therapeutic environment and to reduce building lighting costs 
  • using materials to minimise noise travelling around the building which can be distracting to patients and their recovery
  • installing underfloor heating and air conditioning to create a comfortable environment
  • providing flexible workstations in the treatment rooms including a desk and IT equipment to make it easier for staff to access patient records held online
  • building outdoor courtyards to create a calm and relaxed atmosphere to support their recovery.

Building works are well underway at the Lincoln County Hospital base and are due to be completed by 2023.
