The MR/CT Scanner Redevelopment Scheme situated within Hartshead North at Tameside General Hospital is to serve as a new extension to the department and alleviate the ever increasing demand on the existing facility.
The accommodation itself comprises of a new MR/CT scanner room which houses brand new pioneering CT scanning equipment, a control room, spacious waiting area, changing rooms and additional ancillary areas. The expansion of the CT Scanner service meant the connection of the new build to the side of Hartshead south at ground floor. In doing so the existing fire escape routes from the Hartshead south had to be redesigned and extended through the new build to a new external level area.
The Project has been received very well by the End Users who feel this will improve patient care and waiting times within a thoroughly pleasant environment.
