National Health Service organisations are responsible for maintaining estates. However, we have provided a £110 million ring-fenced allocation to address the most serious and immediate risks posed by Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete.

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn has employed structural surveyors to assess the condition of its affected infrastructure and has received over £20 million to undertake the recommended mitigation measures. This is regularly re-assessed and will be supported by funding secured at the Spending Review 2021.
