ALTERNATIVE car park arrangements will be in effect from Monday (16) as work starts on the new Emergency Centre.
The £1.5 million ‘one-stop shop’ building beside A&E is to replace the Walk-In Centre from spring 2017.
A spokesman for Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust said: “Certain car parks will be closed and alternative arrangements on the site will be put in place.
“We will endeavour to keep this disruption level to a minimum. We suggest people allow extra time when visiting in order to familiarise themselves with new car parking facilities.
“We would like to thank the public in advance for their support and cooperation while work is undertaken.”
The Walk-In at Rotherham Community Health Centre will maintain its current service until the new building is completed.
Health bosses say having its two-storey replacement next door to A&E will help patients to access the correct level of care quickly and without having to travel between centres.
The work beginning next week is preparatory and includes moving gas pipes which were found to be in the way.
Internal alterations at the current building will follow in May and construction on the main building is expected to begin in October, the trust says.
