Welcome
We would like to welcome you to this exhibition held by The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch
Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The existing hospital buildings and service accommodation need modernising
Earlier in the year the Hospital Trust
asked for your views on the future use of
the Christchurch Hospital site. Over recent
years, changes at the site have had to be
made to keep up with modern healthcare
needs, while also ensuring the best use
of limited resources. As a consequence,
half of the hospital is vacant with services
scattered across the site.
The Hospital Trust firmly believes that limited
NHS funds should be used for providing high
quality healthcare services, rather than the
maintenance of vacant property. However, it
also recognises how important Christchurch
Hospital is to the local community, and after
listening to local residents has developed these
proposals.
Views were sought on a proposal to maintain
existing hospital services and develop a range
of wider healthcare services that could be
provided on the site. There was overwhelming
support from local authorities and local people.
This was endorsed by the Hospital Trust’s
Board of Directors.
Since then, the Hospital Trust has been
through an extensive exercise to develop
the proposal further to ensure the scheme
modernises existing buildings, improves and
enhances services, makes better use of the
site and is affordable.
Dr Neil Hopkinson, Clinical Director for
Specialty Services, says the plans are
exciting:
“The outcome is very exciting with a
range of existing and new patient and
community services for local people,
improved facilities and a much better
environment.”
The proposal also ensures a reduction
in the number of empty buildings on-site
to achieve savings in capital and running
costs. A crucial element in housing such
a mixed healthcare development is that it
provides enabling income which supports
maintaining NHS services on-site. Without
these other elements the overall scheme is
not viable.
The Hospital Trust would like you to express
your support for the whole scheme. Your
support is important to ensure a thriving
community service can continue at
Christchurch Hospital. Your support will
also form part of the planning application to
Christchurch Borough Council at the end of
September.
Thank you

An exciting range of developments for existing, and new, patient and community services. Improved
facilities and a much improved healthcare environment.

nhancements to the
E
front green
whilst hospital and GP use
is mainly working hours,
therefore some parking
space will be able to
be shared.
New tree planting will
be incorporated into the
green at the front of the
hospital to ensure existing
trees are replaced when
they reach the end of
their natural life. There is
also the potential to make
more use of the green at
the front of the site as a
public open space. One
idea is to create a trim
trail to encourage outdoor
exercise.

Trees
The majority of the
trees on-site will be
retained, particularly the
mature trees at the front
of the site. However
some trees will be lost,
the majority of which
have been identified as
dead or dying or in poor
condition. These trees
will be replaced with
twice as many new trees
located throughout the
site to enhance its green
character. This is a key
principle of the project
plan.

essential services are
not appropriate.

Hospital Trust will continue
to liaise with Macmillan
staff to identify the best
solution for continuing this

Enhancing existing
hospital services
The Hospital Trust is seeking to improve current services and provide the best environment possible for
staff and patients. This can be achieved through the refurbishment of existing buildings and part new-build. It is
important to retain the green at the front of the site as well as provide landscape areas on other parts of the site.

The Chapel will be moved
and could become a multiuse facility throughout the
week to support patient
and community groups.
This award-winning service
prevents emergency
admission to hospital and
supports people after they
leave hospital. The NHS
patient transport service
makes access to the Day
Hospital easy, and the
availability of the expert
team of doctors, nurses
and therapists works well.
This service is retained in
Forest Dean. The building
will be refurbished and
better use will be made
of the sheltered garden
incorporating the transfer of
the sensory garden feature.

Dermatology
This specialist unit
provides services
for Bournemouth,
Christchurch, the
New Forest and East
Dorset. The service
will stay where it is
but the facilities will be
refurbished to improve
the environment and
patient flows.

Therapies
The service will now
be accessed via Outpatients, using the central
reception and waiting.
The department will be
improved by addition of
more consulting rooms
and an enhanced gym
environment.

Introducing the care home and
senior living
Almost one-third of Christchurch residents are over 65 (2011 census). This figure is likely to increase
over the next twenty years but there is a lack of local residential facilities to cater for this. The provision of
housing for the elderly will help to meet this need, and is consistent with the overall approach to the site to improve
health supporting facilities. It also links well to the healthcare services provided. The Christchurch Hospital site
provides the perfect location to blend a state-of-the-art care home with elderly independent living dwellings.
Artist’s impression of the proposed assisted living apartments
Quantum is the Trust’s preferred partner
for providing the older person housing /
nursing home.
and the assisted living could generate between
10 and 20 new jobs, indirectly there will also be
benefits to local services and business.
Julian Shaffer, Managing Director of
Quantum Group, outlined Quantum’s
approach to the site:
Quantum has established some key principles
in designing homes for independent living:
“Our philosophy is to create ‘life
giving’ environments where activities,
interaction and stimulation provide a
purpose for life, linking closely with
local residents and volunteers. This
allows for an appropriate level of
independence to be maintained as
residents grow older.”
The proposals include an 80-bed care home,
providing differing levels of care, within a new
building of up to three and a half storeys, which
will be linked to some new assisted living flats
for the over 55s. The new nursing home is
likely to generate between 80 to 100 new jobs
The design approach has been to blend a
modern treatment with a respect for the
cultural context.
• C
reate homes with space, accessibility and
flexibility that can adapt as care needs change.
• H
igh quality design that provides ample
daylight, spacious room sizes, luxury fittings and
understated style that will ensure running costs
are minimised and maintenance is low.
• P
rovide a personalised choice-based care/
support service, whereby occupants can call
upon nursing services or simply domiciliary
services to assist with that little bit of extra help
such as cleaning or cooking.
• B
uilt-in security and safety with 24-hour
emergency call systems, and mobility scooter
accessibility, storage and charging facilities.
Quantum is a Christchurch-based company
and therefore benefits will be seen locally.

Introducing key worker housing
for hospital staff
The planning application will seek to agree the principle of providing 33 new houses and 48 flats,
specifically for hospital staff or other key workers to rent. The detailed design of these building will be subject
to further consultation and agreed later with Christchurch Borough Council, as the planning authority.
Artist’s impression of new flats to the left and new GP surgery to the right of the image
Artist’s impression of new street with housing shown on both sides
The images above show how the new houses
and flats relate to the hospital buildings. One
of the key principles of the site-wide plan has
been to achieve a comprehensive approach to
the site through the landscape treatment, while
providing a clear differentiation between the
uses and an appropriate design response to
their function.
The height and massing of the residential
development reflects the existing context of
houses and flats around the site. The houses
will be two-storey (with a room in the
roof) and the flats a mix of three and
four-storey.
Given high rental rates, many NHS staff
(and other public sector staff) see working in
Christchurch and Bournemouth as expensive,
which affects recruitment and retention, and
thus service provision to the public. This
accommodation will help. In addition, the local
demand for housing will be helped, which has
a wider public benefit and reduces demand to
build on green belt or similar high community
value land.
Possible housing styles
The design approach shown here is
contemporary to blend with the hospital
while using a softer palette of materials
such as timber cladding to define the
residential area.

Next steps
The Hospital Trust is working towards the submission of a planning application for the redevelopment
of the site. The submission will be made towards the end of September.
