Hospitals get construction priority

HEALTH MINSTER Alan Milburn this week announced a list of 11 new priority hospital projects worth £1bn to start in the next 18 months.

The 11 hospitals include three privately financed schemes which failed to make it onto the list of 13 priority schemes announced last summer. One, Gloucester Royal Infirmary, was originally promoted as a private finance project but will now go ahead using public money.

Meanwhile Consort, the BICC-led consortium, announced that it had signed contracts for the £96M construction and finance of North Durham Hospital. Kier also announced that it had reached financial close on East Kilbride's £67.5M Hairmyers hospital.
