Macmillan Cancer Support – Royal Oldham Hospital, Rochdale


The Pennine Acute Hospitals & Macmillan Cancer Support

Project Value



Improvement works to the existing Haematology ward to allow a greater user experience in several domains including; improvements to the design and use of space, the user’s journey, service experience, and the user’s voice.


The project will entail a redesign of the reception area allowing greater privacy in addition to improved seating, provision of a new staff office, flexible screening/partition areas to the day treatment areas, incorporating a patient/family/carer waiting booth, and the provision of artwork and decorations to the existing walls within the ward.

Fellows Add Value

Fellows were appointed to provide early cost advice and an order of cost relating to a range of proposed design options, and were able to use their expertise to advise on the most cost effective solutions that would provide the greatest value to the ward. Fellows worked alongside the Client and Architect to develop the design requirements and advising on how to achieve best value for money.
