Welcome news for two of our hospitals

Published: 26 May 2023

Hospitals in our area were included in government announcements yesterday about the new hospitals programme.

Below you can find statements from Princess Alexandra Hospital and from West Herts Hospitals Teaching NHS Trust, welcoming the news.
There is also a statement from Mount Vernon Cancer Centre which was not included in the list of hospitals to be granted funding under this programme:

Whipps Cross Hospital, which is part of Barts NHS Trust, serves some of our west Essex residents. The hospital has also been included in the list of hospitals whose redevelopment will proceed and be fully-funded as part of this programme. The hospital chiefs have welcomed the announcement and are working up next steps and timetable.
Read the oral statement in parliament from the secretary of state where he made the announcements and where you can see the information about the different cohorts in the programme.
