Craigavon Area Hospital Surgical Ambulatory & Assessment Unit (SAAU)
"This refurbishment project appears to be well run to professional standards. In summary, site has considerate practices with outcomes as very good (3) and excellent (2) and congratulations are due.
Appearance is to a very good standard based on some photographs and the description discussed with the SM. Site appears to have very good relations with staff contacts and well manages interfaces in the "live environment". It is committed to providing a very thoughtful legacy by refurbishing a quiet room and courtyard garden area. The Enviro and Safety approaches use the company certified systems. Site has been awarded an
excellent score in the Enviro section primarily because of its contribution to the natural environment which undoubtedly will have positive impact on the user community.
Workforce needs are overall to a very good standard given the nature of the job and beneficial client provisions. The site was a pleasure to visit with very many thanks to Gerard for his time and courtesy in facilitating the virtual visit and supplying the photographs."
"Site demonstrates an excellent considerate approach to its impact on neighbours and the public. Direct communications are through a nominated staff team and SM has daily and regular planned contact. Working hours agreed with Estates Department as 7.30-17.00 and impacted staff agree arrangements for potentially disruptive work. Effective traffic management and site has white panels as temporary hoarding and has relevant signage including CCS poster – SM plans to display a CCS banner when compound area is available in the New Year
Site is overall taking a very good approach to attaining high levels of safe performance - this is a "live environment" requiring management of interfaces with hospital staff, patients and the public. SM has biweekly TBT's and site benefits from access to a defibrillator at the adjacent A&E unit. Workforce completed OH questionnaires and benefit from Private Health Insurance with Health Screening to be made available when pandemic permits."
