£11m state of the art operating theatres officially open

Four additional state-of-the-art operating theatres have been officially opened at Sheffield Teaching Hospital’s Royal Hallamshire Hospital.

The new theatres, located on Q floor have already treated over 1500 patients.

Tony Pedder OBE, Chairman of Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, who officially opened the new theatre suite said: “The four new theatres are the first phase of a £30m project which will take place over the next 5 years. In addition to the new theatres, all 14 theatres on A floor at the hospital will also be re-developed into state of the art operating facilities.”

Dr Nick Barron, Clinical Director for Operating Services at Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, said: “The new theatres are state of the art and have innovative design features such as an ultraclean ventilation canopy for infection control. As well as enabling us to provide fantastic operating facilities for patients, the new facilities also mean an improved working environment for our theatre teams.”
