Major plans to redevelop part of a Southampton hospital have been unveiled.

Parts of the Royal South Hants Hospital could be demolished to make way for new facilities which include a nursing home, a housing-with-care facility and a car park.

The scheme has been described as a 'health campus'.

We've listed the proposals in full below.

  • The existing staff car park could be turned into either a primary care facility or a 70-bed nursing home providing care for people with dementia or similar conditions.
  • The Newtown Clinic and the hospital’s Boiler House could be demolished to make way for either the aforementioned nursing home or primary care facility
  • The outpatient services and the city’s community independence service currently provided at the site could be relocated elsewhere in the city.

  • Meanwhile, the department of psychiatry building which has been empty since 2010, would be either repurposed or demolished to provide approximately 60  units of housing with care.
  • The Fanshawe Wing, currently in use, could instead be demolished to make way for a housing with care development of a further 60 units or alternatively a development of key worker housing.
  • The services currently provided at Fanshawe Wing would instead be rehoused in the Mary Seacole Wing.
  • The deconsecrated grade II listed hospital chapel built in the late 1860s could also be given a new lease of life and transformed into a community space serving both the hospital and the neighbourhood.
  • Brambles Wing would also be demolished to make way for a car park.
