Staff at the new entrance to the Richard Salt Unit at Good Hope Hospital

New look hospital entrance at Good Hope provides a warm welcome

Story posted/last updated: 10 June 2021

The Richard Salt Unit (RSU) entrance at Good Hope Hospital has a brand new look inside and out following extensive refurbishment works.

The external appearance of the building has benefited from significant cosmetic improvement work and on entering the RSU, new automatic entrance doors offer much improved patient accessibility. Inside the entrance there are a host of new modern facilities, including a new café with a larger seating area, energy efficient lighting, new toilet facilities, as well as an additional specialist accessible toilet for those unable to use standard disabled toilets.

The hospital’s popular Parcels for Patients Service has also relocated to the new RSU entrance, with friends and relatives asked to drop any items off at the drop off point located there.

Khaled Elfandi, Good Hope Hospital Site Lead, said: “We are thrilled with the new entrance which provides a warm welcome for those arriving at the RSU and has vastly improved the environment for patients, staff and visitors.

“With many aspects of the RSU design and décor unchanged since the 1960s, the works have completely modernised the look and feel of the building, whilst also offering the highest infection prevention and control measures.”

The £845,000 investment for the RSU includes a £430,000 donation from a generous local resident who wishes to remain anonymous. The Trust is extremely grateful to this individual for providing this exemplar facility.
