Planning permission secured for new ‘specialist hospital’

Prime has secured planning permission for a £65 million specialist hospital facility on the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham campus, Birmingham, which it says will deliver high quality acute healthcare for private patients in the region, and provide additional capacity and specialist facilities for NHS patients.

A joint venture between University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust Foundation Trust (UHB) and HCA Healthcare UK, being developed by the specialist healthcare property company, the 14,728 m2 hospital will be equipped to provide ‘some of the most complex surgical and medical procedures’ in cancer, cardiology, neurology, hepatobiliary, urology, orthopaedics, and stem cell transplantation. It will include 66 private beds, owned and run by HCA UK, plus 72 NHS beds, a new radiotherapy unit, and ‘state-of-the-art’ operating theatres.

 

The scheme, designed by HOK, will be built by VINCI Construction UK, with work expected to start this summer, and a completion date of winter 2020. Dr Dave Rosser, the Trust’s executive medical director, said: “The new facility will add much-needed acute capacity for NHS patients in the region, with additional world-class facilities and expertise colocated to provide complex and excellent care.”
