Some services at Royal Berkshire Hospital could be moved out of Reading.

Royal Berkshire Foundation Trust is considering moving parts of its Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) department to another site, with Townlands in Henley the most likely choice, while other services could also move.

The trust says it is carrying out a wide scale review of all its estate and looking at how it can best use its buildings and facilities for the benefit of all patients.

All clinical services are being looked at as the trust looks to “ensure it has the right estate to provide high quality care fit for the 21st century”.

A spokesman at Royal Berks Foundation Trust said: “As part of this work we are looking at how we best use and provide services from all of the sites where we offer healthcare, including Townlands.

“We know that ENT at the Royal Berkshire Hospital is facing particular challenges with its current facilities on the Reading site and our review will consider the possibility of moving some parts of this service to another site, possibly Townlands.

“The review of our estate is in its early stages and we will be engaging with patients, and staff, about any changes before they take place.”

Townlands Memorial Hospital, in Henley, provides services run by Royal Berkshire and Oxfordshire’s NHS trusts.
