The man who will head up Nottingham’s newest hospital has spoken about his plans for the 58-bed unit when it opens its doors in March next year.
Will Pressley is Hospital Director at the Spire Nottingham Hospital, which is presently being built next to the Nottingham City Airport in Tollerton.
Will, 41, who lives with his wife and two children in the nearby village of Hickling, said: “We plan to provide world class healthcare in a state-of-the-art facility that will link with the university and Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust to support research and education which will further the reputation of the city as a centre of healthcare excellence.
“This is a unique opportunity for Spire Nottingham Hospital to make a very positive impression on the region’s healthcare services. With the facilities the hospital has and the consultants we hope to have working here I am sure we will succeed in that.
“I have also been impressed with the engagement and interest from the medical community which has already given us a lot of encouragement and support. This will help us shape how the hospital develops and the way it cares for patients, staff and everyone else associated with us.”
The hospital is also expected to create 150 new jobs and a range of employment opportunities is still available.
