A search of the Department’s Ministerial correspondence database from the last six months has identified no items of correspondence received on the need to redevelop Whipps Cross Hospital.
On 29 September the Government announced the next stage in our strategic investment in the National Health Service, with the Health Infrastructure Plan to ensure that our health infrastructure is fit-for-purpose for decades to come. The Plan forms the most ambitious rolling programme of investment in health infrastructure and hospital building in recent decades, and a new, strategic approach to improving our hospitals and health infrastructure.
Whipps Cross Hospital’s major scheme is one of the six projects that will form the first £2.7 billion phase of the major hospital rebuilds. This gives the green light for the Redevelopment of Whipps Cross Hospital Scheme, to deliver a brand new hospital at Whipps Cross, providing a range of services including, emergency and maternity as well as specific outpatient, diagnostic, surgical and support for intensive care services.
