CLIENT:Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust
LOCATION:Worcestershire Royal Hospital, Worcestershire, UK
CAPITAL VALUE:£23 million
CATEGORY:Negotiated PFI procured Acute Hospital Extension
State-of-the-art centre opened in January 2015, offering radiotherapy treatment for Worcestershire patients in county for the first time.
In 2011, Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust embarked on the procurement of a state of the art Cancer Care facility in Worcestershire. The building would include a Radiotherapy centre on the ground floor, to consist of five linear accelerator bunkers, treatment planning suite, mould suite and diagnostic CT suite, along with public areas, a café, and Macmillan information area. The first floor would include shell space for future development as a Chemotherapy Unit.
The strategic context for this project came from the joint working and funding and operating initiative between Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust and Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust. Both Trusts had worked independently with SHP previously and were aware of the range of services we offer.
SHP Roles and Responsibilities
SHP provided capacity and facility planning for the project, including input into the Business Case and design of the Public Sector Comparator. SHP was also retained by the Trust in an advisory capacity, reviewing the architect’s documents at each stage of the design and construction of the facility, providing critical feedback on compliance as well as promoting opportunities for adding value.
