The Autumn Statement allocated £12 billion to the Department of Health and Social Care capital budget for 2022-23.

In the 12 months to September this year, over 150 hospital projects across the UK secured planning consent. The total value of these schemes is nearly £2.5 billion, a rise of 37% on the total value of hospital work approved in the previous year.

South West leads

The region with the largest amount of approved work is the South West, where 20 hospital schemes valued at more than £700 million have won planning permission in the last year.

Capital plans

The next biggest region in terms of work in the pipeline is London, where a £250 million new eye hospital near King’s Cross now has full business case approval.

Seven buildings at the site of the existing Moorfields’ Eye Hospital will be demolished to clear space for the 39,500 sq m hospital.

Next year will also see the start of design work on a £328 million redevelopment of Charing Cross Hospital.

More approvals

Another major hospital project to recently secure planning permission is a proposed £42 million children’s heart surgery unit at the city’s Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
