The facility will become a UK Centre of Excellence for the treatment and care of cancer patients.

This £65 million project, procured under the Government's Private Finance Initiative Scheme, will incorporate a new three-storey 15,000m² building as well as an Oncology unit with 100 bed spaces and a two-storey academic block.

The facility is set to become a UK Centre of Excellence for the treatment and care of cancer patients. It will utilise the most up-to-date technology available. A patient-centred service will provide a physical environment that is designed around patients needs and will promote well-being, recovery and be a safe haven for patients and their families.

The hospital will also offer out-patient day care, a day hospital, 116 beds in four wards, six linear accelerators, as well as pathology, pharmacy and medical physics facilities.

The project was designed to be in keeping with the surrounding area keeping the buildings as one or two storeys, allowing the scheme to fit closely to the hillside. The main entrance building is perceived as the village hall and the wards and out-patient areas resemble residential ‘cottages'.

The entire project adheres to the guidance given in ‘Sustainable development in the NHS' and ‘New environmental strategy for the NHS', produced by NHS Estates. The building also delivers a 20% improvement in energy efficiency over and above current building regulations.

Horbury Building Systems Ltd and Titan Ceilings Ltd were contracted to install the SFS, partitions and suspended ceilings respectively.
