Bouygues UK has been appointed to design and build the new Ambulatory Diagnostic Centre at West Middlesex University Hospital.

The contract, built on a competitive bid process, builds on the long-term partnership between the trust, Bouygues UK, and its subsidiaries.

The new five-storey facility will provide diagnostic and treatment services in cancer, renal, and imaging for local residents in Hounslow, Richmond, and Ealing.

It aims to reduce health inequalities, improve patient outcomes, and provide care closer to home, freeing up space in the main hospital for inpatient care. It will also support outpatient care and offer day services for patients.

The project includes five storeys of new build, a rooftop plant, and a small terrace area, while the ground floor will incorporate a new single-storey link corridor to the existing hospital building.

Bouygues UK will be supporting the local community with apprenticeships and work experience placements, working with educational institutions in the area and taking part in local charity initiatives.

Lesley Watts CBE, chief executive of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, said: “The new diagnostic centre at West Middlesex University Hospital will provide a vital service for our residents, speeding up diagnosis and treatment.

“Most importantly, it will improve early diagnosis and health outcomes for patients in our community for years to come.”

The development is designed to be an all-electric building.
