We’re investing over £3.5m to bring a new, fully accessible, physiotherapy department and gym to College Green in Bournville: ROH at College Green.
Outpatient physiotherapy and podiatry services are relocated, the brand new gym hosts specialist equipment and a paediatric space supports our younger patients.
Our new site
The 3.5m investment will transform the service offered to our physiotherapy patients by our team, and the site in the community will provide easier access for patients.
Opening to patients on 3 April 2023, the building will provide state of the art equipment, a purpose built and spacious physiotherapy gym, and 16 new treatment rooms of which two are dedicated for children and young people.
We have worked closely with our Dementia and learning disability teams and have designed the new spaces to be dementia friendly. There is a dementia-supportive waiting room, and patients will be able to use the AccessAble service to plan their visit before their appointment.
As part of the College Green development, there are GP services located in the same building.
Planning permission and £3.5m of funding was granted for the relocation and development of our Physiotherapy service, moving from the hospital site to a new home in the community which is easier for patients to access.
Construction work started in 2022 and is due to complete in spring 2023.
When the centre opens, at least 25 dedicated staff in the Therapy department will work at ROH at College Green, from Consultants and Senior Physiotherapists to team leaders.
Offering state of the art facilities for staff and patients, ROH at College Green will provide space for a range of services.
Over £25,000 has been invested in equipment for the physiotherapy gym and treatment rooms.
Hydrotherapy and oncology appointments will continue to be provided at the main Royal Orthopaedic Hospital site.
The new department will contain:
- Purpose built physiotherapy gym for classes and individual treatments
- 16 treatment rooms
- Two treatment rooms dedicated for children and young people
- Baby change facilities and two accessible bathrooms
- Lift access from the ground floor
- Changing room and 16 lockers for patients
- Large, comfortable waiting areas with patient entertainment systems and self-check in.
Facilities for physiotherapy colleagues include
- Staff room
- Office with capacity for four admin staff
- Two staff changing rooms
Frequently asked questions
We are relocating our Physiotherapy department and upgrading facilities available for patients.
This means we can provide care to patients away from the main hospital site in the community, which also allows the older space at the main hospital site to be redeveloped.
ROH at College Green is a short walk or drive down the Bristol Road, away from the main hospital site.
You can find the department located on the third floor of College Green, and is accessible by lift.
