Creating the confidence for long-term investments

The New Hospital Programme is ‘as challenging as it is ambitious’, says the team co-ordinating it. In the second in a series of articles in HEJ from key NHP personnel, Programme director, Saurabh Bhandari, describes how the way major healthcare infrastructure is delivered must change to meet demand.

Our multi-billion-pound portfolio of investments will not only transform healthcare infrastructure, but also how that infrastructure is delivered. We intend to create an enduring legacy of skills, relationships, and productivity, in the industry, while maximising the socioeconomic benefits for the communities our hospitals serve. The facilities being created (40 schemes by 2030, with further schemes being invited to bid for potential future funding) will be ‘smarter’, easier to operate, and create a platform for the NHS to deliver the best care effectively and efficiently. 

It is also our intention to build enduring capability – a sustainable supply chain and culture that will support renewal of the NHS estate beyond the end of this decade. We are delivering specialist hospitals, fullservice district general and women’s and children’s hospitals, and community and mental healthcare facilities in four cohorts

Good progress being made
