Laing O’Rourke get the go ahead for new Liverpool cancer hospital

Plans to build a major cancer hospital next to the Royal Liverpool Hospital have got the green light from the city council.

Laing O'Rourke, which won a £106m contract to deliver the project, will now start work later this year, with the 110-bed hospital opening by the end of 2019.

The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust has simultaneously also had the full business case for the 11-floor hospital approved by new NHS regulator, NHS Improvement, subject to a few final conditions.

The hospital has been designed by the same team at BDP that created the new Alder Hey Children's Hospital.

The cost of the new hospital will be funded by the NHS and is not a private finance initiative. The funding is coming from a combination of The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre's own reserves, NHS commissioners, some borrowing from government sources and a public fundraising appeal.
