OXFORD’S John Radcliffe Hospital has won planning permission to extend its main entrance to create a glazed reception area.

The extension, between the original hospital and the women’s centre, will also provide four shops and a cafe.

A new covered drop-off point for ambulances will be created, with parking spaces in the area reconfigured.

Oxford City Council ’s chief planning officer Murray Hancock described it as a “fairly straightforward” proposal and said there had been no objections.

Councillors questioned whether the removal of trees could cause surface water run-off in the area, but the Environment Agency raised no concerns. The east area planning committee approved the scheme on Thursday evening.

It would be nice if they'd spend some money catching up on the backlog of operations first.

I do hope they provide a smoking area so we don't have to walk through a cloud of cigarette smoke on our way to chest clinic. People are under immense stress when they're in hospital, or visiting a sick relative/friend, so we can't expect them to give up. BUT, they shouldn't inflict their foul stench on the rest of us.

Apparently, if every patient turned up to their appointments (on the first appointment for the next 6 months) the waiting lists would be around 30% shorter. Within 18 months waiting lists would be purely down to funding and cancellations due to staff illness.

Either way it'll be good to have an M&S simply food on site.
