  The ISIS Facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the UK produces intense neutron and muon beams for condensed matter research. It operates at 50 Hz accelerating 3x1013 protons per pulse via a 70 MeV H linac and an 800 MeV proton synchrotron, delivering a mean beam power of 0.2 MW. A favoured first step to upgrade ISIS towards the megawatt regime is replacement of the linac with a new 180 MeV injector. Studies of this upgrade, which aims to increase mean beam power up to 0.5 MW are continuing. This paper summarises designs for a new injection region including beam dynamics and related hardware.
