Ludlow Street Healthcare has announced a £1.5 million investment to extent facilities at St Peter’s Hospital in Newport, which is expected to create roughly 75 new jobs in the future.

The healthcare company’s aim is to address the growing rates of people suffering from neurodegenerative diseases, and to prepare their services to provide adequate care and treatment going forward.

Over the three-stage development, the hospital will create an additional 4,542ft worth of space and 18 new beds to care for patients with dementia, Huntingdon’s Disease and those with complex brain injuries. By the end of the year, 75 new medical jobs are expected to be added.

Deputy chairman at Ludlow Street Healthcare, Jane Watkins, said: “We are delighted to be able to announce the St Peter’s Hospital extension project, which we feel will significantly enhance the highly regarded treatment and rehabilitation service we already offer.

“There are currently 800,000 people living with dementia in the UK, and due to people living longer and changing lifestyles, this is forecast to increase to one million.

“This construction project, along with the extra staff and facilities means we will be better able to meet the growing requirement for specialist neuropsychiatric care.

“We have long believed that St Peter’s Hospital is a leader in the care of people with neurodegenerative disorders, and we feel that this significant investment and new build will reinforce this position.”
