Moving to your new HQ and EOC in Crawley

24 February 2017

Our move to the Trust’s new headquarters at Crawley is finally in the calendar.

Crawley HQFirming the dates has been a complex process, coordinating many threads which are now coming together.

While the building on Gatwick Road nears completion, the sophisticated IT system that will underpin the EOC and corporate functions is almost ready to go. Progressing alongside these IT systems is the new CAD for the EOC, which we’re working to dovetail for a smooth transition.

There’s an extensive resilience, testing and support phase on the new systems during March and April, but once these are complete, the move for EOC and corporate staff can begin.

Key dates for your diary

  1. 01.05.2017 to 19.05.2017 – Relocation of Lewes corporate staff to Crawley
  2. 22.05.2017 to 12.06.2017 – Relocation of Banstead and Lewes EOC staff to Crawley
  3. 30.06.2017 – Relocation of remaining corporate staff completed

Detailed planning will be undertaken in conjunction with functional managers to ensure that we are able to maintain business-as-usual throughout the move period.

Now that work on the building and infrastructure are well under way, the focus of the project is shifting to the impact on our staff.

If you haven’t yet taken the opportunity to have a One to One meeting with HR about how the move will affect you, don’t forget to book your appointment.

You may find your questions are answered in the FAQs on the Intranet page, but if not, you can email newhq&eoc@secamb.nhs.uk and we’ll make sure we get back to you.
