Royal London Hospital
A £1.85 million contract for the pharmacy and pathology building at the Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel, has been completed by Thermal Transfer.

Specialist contractor Thermal Transfer has completed a £1.85 million turnkey project at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel. The company’s Swindon office had total responsibility for the design, build and validation of the pharmaceutical production site (PPS) in the new £52 million pharmacy and pathology building constructed by Laing O’Rourke.

The existing PPS in the basement of St Barts in the City of London, serves two more hospitals in the trust and provides specialist products to over 85 other hospitals. Mike Lillywhite, director of pharmaceutical technical services, explained, ‘It is over 20 years old, and pharmacy standards have moved on since it was completed. The facility has also reached the limit of its capacity.

The specification of the new 830 m2 suite features clean rooms to EC GMP grade B and grade D standard, together with built-in grade A LAF units and pharmaceutical isolators. TT also provided the laboratory furniture and all associated mechanical, electrical and medical-gas services, specialist environmental monitoring and fumigation systems.
