Thomson Gray are providing lead advisor services incorporating NEC project manager, NEC supervisor, cost advisor and principal designer on a new linear accelerator (LINAC) treatment facility at NHS Lothian’s Western General Hospital in Edinburgh. The two-storey, state-of-the-art centre is part of an oncology enabling works programme that will retain capacity for oncology services at the Western General site until a new purpose-built cancer treatment centre is delivered. It features new radiation shielded bunkers, and oncology administration offices. The specialist design ensures the project can be delivered without disruption to any of NHS Lothian’s clinical services on site, retaining ambulance access to the adjacent departments and buildings. Staff spaces have been designed to be bright and bold to contrast with the clinical spaces, including softer more tactile spaces to support mental health and provide a break from the clinical environment. The wider enabling works includes refurbishment of the oncology department including the creation of a new cancer assessment unit and ward upgrades to day chemotherapy, ward 2 and ward 4.
