To undertake some urgent maintenance work at Royal Preston Hospital, we will be closing our Sharoe Green Unit (SGU) main entrance between the hours 10pm – 6am from Monday 28th June - Saturday 3rd July 2021.
For patients requiring access to the wards within the SGU between these hours, entry will be via the Ante Natal Clinic emergency exit where they will be met by a security guard and escorted through to reception.
In addition, there will be no access from the ground floor to the first or second floors via the staircase in the SGU main reception. Lifts will remain in operation and should be utilised instead. In exceptional circumstances, where a lift cannot be used, please contact the ward who will liaise with contractors to allow safe access to the stair case.
Patients booking into SGU will need to book in at the temporary reception in Ante Natal clinic overnight (not where the reception currently resides) - this will be clearly signposted.
If you have any concerns, please discuss this with the relevant ward directly.
