Demolition begins to prepare for new Learning and Development Centre

Published on:

Work started this week to prepare the site for our new state-of-the-art Learning and Development Centre at Calderdale Royal Hospital.

The hoardings have gone up and the demolition of the disused 1970s NHS housing in Dryclough Close is now underway. This work is expected to last throughout the month. 

The new facility will be created off-site before being brought to its new location, and will be surrounded by landscaping and trees. 

NHS colleagues will have individual and team learning in the new centre, which will also house the library and Simulation suite. It is expected to open later this year.

The new Centre will replace the existing facility, which will eventually become the site for new clinical buildings when redevelopment works at Calderdale Royal commence. 

Moving the Rainbow Centre to its new location into the Clock House in Elland has also been part of the ongoing transformation planning.
