Portsmouth Relocation Update. Rodney Road Site to QuAD, QA Hospital, Cosham

The last briefing in March advised you of our intention to relocate from the current site at Rodney Road, St Mary's Hospital to the QuAD building at QA Hospital, Cosham.

The project is now moving rapidly with final lease negotiations taking place. It is hoped that these negotiations concluded the end of May 2013.

PHT has commenced work to relocate its staff currently based within the QuAD building and upgrade works are due to commence June 2013 in preparation for our arrival. We will be working in partnership with PHT for the duration of the upgrade/fit out works. This is to ensure we create an excellent teaching facility, comfortable office space for staff and also meet the needs of the business going forward.

 From 2013 the following will be based/taught from the QuAD

It is likely that moves for staff will be phased to take place as follows; during July and August for the Library and staff moving to Highfield; the final move to the QA site towards the end of August ready for teaching in September 2013.

The staff consultation period is now complete with confirmation letters sent by the end of May 2013 (this will confirm arrangements for future working). As part of this process staff attended one-to-one meetings with their line manager and HR as well as being given the opportunity to tour the new site prior to work commencing. Further tours are likely to be arranged over the summer.

Plans have been completed for the new offices. If anyone would like to view these please contact Christina Young -

For information: Christina is currently based at both Highfield (67/4067) and Rodney Road (G25), however it is likely that her time in Portsmouth will increase over the coming months.

Christina will continue to keep all FoHS staff and key stakeholder up to date with progress.
