As announced on 30 September £100 million of seed funding has been made available to support 21 major projects to commence their development of schemes to be delivered in a second phase of major hospital rebuilds (HIP2).

This £100 million of seed funding will be provided as capital and will enable project teams, specialist advisers and site surveys. The funding will be drawn by providers in line with need up to 1% of the estimated capital value of each HIP2 scheme. The budget has been received for 2020-21 and 2021-22 financial years but funding this year could be available if there is an immediate and strong case. NHS England and NHS Improvement will be visiting the schemes to discuss their proposals and how they can be helped to develop.

Trusts will be required to provide a breakdown of what seed funding will be spent on and how that will accelerate the project development. The Department and NHS England and NHS Improvement will then ascertain how much seed funding will be provided for each scheme.

Seed funding will not constitute approval of the scheme as a whole as that will be subject to further development and subject to the usual business case approvals process, including demonstrating affordability and value for money.
