WORK is about to start on the final phase of upgrading bathrooms at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
The £1m scheme to improve toilets, showers and bathrooms has been under way since last year.
Facilities for Wards 11, 15, 16, 18, 20 and 21 have already been modernised.
Now work will start in April to complete the project at Wards 1, 4, 5, 7, 8 and 10.
Mark Partington, director of operations for the Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust, which runs the hospital, said: "We are continually improving the facilities for our patients.
"We want them to enjoy high standards of facilities when they are in our care.
"We ask patients and visitors to bear with us while the work is carried out."
Scaffolding is going up outside the building to minimise disruption to the wards.
Work areas will be sealed off while improvements are being made.
The scheme to upgrade facilities comes after bathrooms at HRI were only rated as acceptable when they were assessed in line with Healthcare Commission standards.
Bathrooms at Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax met high standards in the appraisal.
The refurbishment scheme will bring bathrooms across the trust's two sites into line.
Toilets in public areas at HRI have also been updated, including those in A&E, physiotherapy, outpatients Corridor 1 and on the lower ground floor.
