The plans for the new Hillingdon Hospital are a step closer to becoming reality, as a contractor has been selected to prepare the site.
The new hospital will be built on the existing Hillingdon Hospital site, and will provide the same range of services that are currently available but in a high-quality, purpose-built facility.
In May, the hospital was one of those selected to receive government funding as part of the government’s £20billlion New Hospital Programme.
Last month, the Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust selected construction company GRAHAM to prepare the site in order for building work to start.
GRAHAM will oversee a number of projects, including The Furze refurbishment, which will see a listed building converted into the hospital’s long-term clinical administration hub.
Other works in progress include the first phase of establishing the electrical infrastructure required for the new hospital.
The current Hillingdon Hospital will remain open as usual as the works are carried out.
All works are subject to final funding and technical approvals, but the trust expects that the next works at Hillingdon Hospital will be the Furze refurbishment and the services diversions projects, which are anticipated to start in late autumn.
