Brookes Development begins medical expansion

Work has started on a 10,000 sq ft extension to the Leeds Private Hospital at the 17th century Red Hall House estate.

Brookes is the contractor the project, with E3 Architecture leading on design. Red Hall House is grade two-listed.

The estate was sold by the Rugby Football League in 2021 to consultant facial plastic surgeon Dr Fas Arshad and his wife Ms Sommiya, chief executive of the hospital. The estate lies close to Roundhay Park by the East Leeds Orbital Route.

The owners self-funded a £3m first phase of work, which was completed in 2022 when Leeds Private Hospital became fully operational.

Phase two will comprise an additional two operation theatres, anaesthetic facilities, nursing ward, patient overnight rooms as well as outpatient consulting rooms.

Dr Arshad said: “Since we bought Red Hall House in 2021, Leeds Private Hospital has gone from strength to strength. We have almost doubled our staff and we are employing local NHS consultant surgeons and consultant anaesthetists to come and work with us to provide high standard surgical services.

“Our ultimate aim is to be able to process higher volumes of work to ease the heavy burden on the over-run NHS in the Yorkshire region.”

Work is expected to complete next summer.

Jonathan Erkulis, director of E3 Architecture, said: “Our detailed plans have secured the restoration, sustainability and longevity of this important Grade II Listed Building, while creating sensitive and high-quality designed additions to create a prestigious state-of the-art medical facility.

“It has been a pleasure working with Dr Arshad to secure the stunning redevelopment of Red Hall House itself and of the 10,000 sq ft extension. The project is an example of where conservation and commercial aspirations can work together through major investment.”
