Warwick Hospital

Warwick Hospital expands in partnership with noviniti and One Retail

noviniti has partnered with South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust and One Retail, Compass Group UK & Ireland’s retail sector, to transform the Warwick Hospital estate. The project will help create sustainable and accessible services alongside transforming the hospital’s main entrance look, feel and flow of people.

As part of the development, the Trust is building a dedicated 3-storey elective hub, with reception space on the ground floor and clinical space on the floors above. This will increase the number of surgical procedures they can carry out – helping to meet future service demand & reduce wait times for patients.

noviniti is providing the capital funding to design, project manage and build the new main entrance at Warwick Hospital, which is on the ground floor of the three-storey building. The pathway into the hospital will be improved guiding staff, patients and visitors into the entrance foyer. A new reception desk will greet visitors and the facilities will be enhanced with a new staff restaurant, pharmacy and a suite of public washrooms including a Changing Places.

In a first of its kind, One Retail will combine two high street favourites with a hybrid Marks and Spencer and Costa Coffee, bringing innovative digital screen self-ordering tech. The offer will mean people can purchase a range of goods including Costa Coffee and food such as pastries and sandwiches, as well as quality M&S products. To ensure that the NHS’ mandated 24/7 offer is also available, One Retail will introduce smart fridges, which will mean people can access grab and go food at any time of the day.

Sophie Gilkes, Chief Strategy Officer at South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Our Trust is transforming the Warwick Hospital estate to create sustainable and accessible services, while enhancing the environment and overall experience for our patients, staff and visitors. We are very excited to partner with One Retail and noviniti, to strengthen our food and retail offering and create a modern and welcoming main entrance, which will meet the needs of our local community for years to come.”

Marc Hastings, CEO, noviniti said: “We are delighted to be working with South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust to support their transformation strategy at Warwick Hospital.  Together, with One Retail, the new Main Entrance development will greatly improve the staff, patient and visitor experience and provide an improved pathway into the hospital.  We are looking forward to the doors opening later this year.”

Andrew Jones, One Retail, Managing Director said: “This is a great and innovative retail solution, which makes the most of the space available by creating a hybrid retail concept which will guarantee greater choice and quality for staff, visitors and patients. It’s really exciting to be involved in South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust’s project, which will truly transform Warwick Hospital for everyone visiting it.”
