A two-storey building at Worcestershire Royal Hospital could be taken down to make way for a mobile MRI unit.

Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust is planning to relocate the modular building, which is currently outside the Aconbury North sexual health clinic, to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch.

“The existing area will then need to be made good to allow set up of an existing mobile MRI scanner, which is being moved in the opposite direction from Redditch to Worcester,” plans submitted to the city council state.

“A temporary link will also be formed to connect the mobile scanner to the existing Aconbury link corridor.”

The trust says the “inclusion of a mobile MRI scanner on the site is to add additional facilities and to support the existing scanner as part of the radiology service at Worcestershire Royal Hospital”.

It also said: “The aim of this project is to provide a covered link from the Mobile MRI Unit (or similar) to the existing Aconbury link corridor which connects the Aconbury buildings and allows the direct transfer of patients from the new A+E in Aconbury East.

“The proposed scope of works involves minimal demolition and alterations, with some making good required to ease the transition from the existing modular building.”
