Selection process for further eight new hospitals begins


In the first of a two-stage selection process, the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) is now inviting expressions of interest from NHS Trusts in England for the next phase of implementation of its Health Infrastructure Plan.

This next wave of the programme will identify a further eight new hospitals to be built as part of the government’s commitment to fund and build 40 new hospitals by 2030. Eight pre-existing have also been included in the national programme, bringing the number of new hospitals to 48.

This ‘expression of interest’ phase is open to all Trusts and will be followed by a more detailed process for long-listed schemes later in the year. A final decision on successful schemes is expected in spring 2022. 

This is a process for new hospitals only. It does not cover upgrade schemes which do not meet the Department’s new hospital definition.

Applications in this stage must be received by midday on September 9, 2021.
