Plans for a new A&E department and assessment centre at Wexham Park Hospital are due to go on show at Slough’s Queensmere Observatory Shopping Centre.
Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, which runs the hospital in Wexham Street, will showcase its plans for the £49m transformation at the shopping centre on Wednesday between 10.30am and 3.30pm.
The proposed emergency department would contain separate children’s and minor injuries units, as well as 36 individual rooms for major injuries.
The building would also house a 34-bed combined assessment and ambulatory care centre.
If approved, construction work could start in spring 2017.
Visitors will be given the chance to view the plans and provide feedback, and the consultation follows a previous one held at the hospital in May.
The plans form part of a multi-million pound investment programme to transform services at Wexham Park and Ascot’s Heatherwood Hospital in the coming years.
