Haywood Hospital outpatients redevelopment update

Posted on behalf of Midlands Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust:

We are delighted to announce NHS England (NHSE) has approved the Final Business Case for the redevelopment of the outpatients building at Haywood Hospital in Stoke-on-Trent.

This major step forward unlocks the £17.4m we have been allocated by NHSE through its national Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) eradication programme.

As a reminder, the former Haywood outpatients building contained RAAC within its roof – a form of prefabricated concrete plank which has become outdated. No other MPFT buildings are affected by RAAC.

Seeking to maximise this opportunity as part of our commitment to investing in the future of health and care and making life better for the communities we serve, the decision was taken by the Trust to replace the entire outpatients building with a modern, fit for the future facility. This will require approx. £10m in additional funding, sourced from local capital allocations.

Demolition of the existing outpatients building was completed in early November and, following a competitive tendering exercise we were pleased to have signed a contract with Key Construction (pictured) as the main contractor for the construction of the new outpatients building.

This work is due to get underway this month and we look forward to updating you further in due course.

In the meantime, you can find more information about the scheme via our dedicated web page –
