2020 Delivery is delighted to hear that the go-ahead has been given for plans to build a £300m children’s hospital for the East of England. This announcement, which sees the release of £100m of public capital, follows on from the development and acceptance of an original strategic outline case in 2017, towards which 2020 Delivery was proud to provide support.

The project, a partnership between Cambridge University Hospitals and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trusts, will see the new hospital built adjacent to the Addenbroke’s and Rosie Hospitals.

The new purpose-built facility in Cambridge is a unique opportunity to meet the needs of the region’s youngest patients, integrating mental and physical health and combining the highest quality services with world class science and research. It will bring together some of the world’s top scientists to explore new ways of diagnosing and treating some of the most challenging diseases of childhood. Their digital vision will ensure that children in the East of England receive the very best care closer to their homes and families.

Samuel Rose, who led 2020 Delivery’s support to the development of the project’s strategic outline case, said: “I want to congratulate the dedicated teams at Cambridge University Hospitals Foundation Trust, Cambridge and Peterborough Foundation Trust, and Cambridge University on this exciting news. They have worked tirelessly to ensure the East of England’s youngest patients and their families receive the very best care. I look forward to seeing the huge impact this will have on healthcare and research in the coming years.”
