In September 2019 the Government announced the Health Infrastructure Plan. As part of this, the Government is committed to building 40 new hospitals over the next 10 years.

Alongside the £3.9 billion extra capital funding announced at the 2017 Spring and Autumn Budgets, the Government has announced additional central funding totalling more than £5 billion since August 2019 to improve and modernise National Health Service facilities.

As part of these commitments, patients in Surrey will benefit from the following investments:

- Funding for Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust’s new hospital scheme, providing adult emergency and women and children’s services;

- Almost £40 million sustainability and transformation partnership (STP) funding, including Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust’s £28 million scheme to provide integrated hubs to provide better treatment to patients more quickly out of hospital;

- A share of the £200 million investment in diagnostic machines across England to replace MRI/CT scanners more than 10 years old; and

- A share of £6.7 million provided for the last two winters across Surrey Heartlands STP, Sussex and East Surrey STP and Frimley Health and Care Integrated Care System.
