In September Barts NHS Hospital Trust was given the green light to move forward to the next stage in developing more detailed plans for building a new hospital at Whipps Cross, along with related works.

Whipps Cross is one of six new hospitals to benefit from £2.7billion of funding, subject to business case approvals, as part of the Government’s Health Infrastructure programme.

Barts Health NHS Trust has published ‘Building a Brighter Future for Whipps Cross – Moving to the next stage’.

This offers a summary of the vision for the new Whipps Cross Hospital and follows the Government’s endorsement of the Trust’s Strategic Outline Case (SOC), providing formal confirmation of the Trust’s progression to the next stage of the business case process.

The next stage is for the Trust to develop its Outline Business Case (OBC), which will provide more detail of plans to improve health and care services for the local population, design a new hospital building that is fit for purpose and develop the site for the local community.

This next phase of detailed planning is also considering the long-term impact on the hospital and on other health and care services of the response to Covid-19 as well as work by a newly appointed architect-led design team to involve service users and staff in shaping the hospital’s design.

Now many NHS services are reopening it is important that residents start coming for treatment in a safe way.

Barts NHS Trust has created a range of videos aimed at encouraging our local communities to seek help when they need it, be it through A&E, attending an outpatient appointment, maternity services or when having surgery.

Londoners responded fantastically to the call to stay at home when the outbreak began – the challenge for the NHS now is in encouraging residents to now seek treatment when they need it.
