Anæsthetic & Recovery Room Foundations under construction
Construction of Reinforced Concrete Linking Bridge

The two remaining works still to be undertaken are: -

  1. Putting up the rainwater goods – this also needs to be done on the 12-bed ward, which is as yet to receive its fasçia boards.
  2. Painting the render below floor level outside – which will be some months off yet as the moisture levels are still very high from all the water it collected during the Wet Season.
