Plans to construct a ground-breaking modern cancer hospital in Cambridge have shifted another step ahead. This is after the Government granted approval for the project to seek ‘Expressions of Interest.’ Thus, they are set to find a construction company to execute the project.

Construction of the 279,862 square foot, seven-story modern Cambridge Cancer Research Hospital (CCRH) is expected to begin late in 2023. Additionally, the hospital will be constructed on Addenbrooke’s Hospital-adjacent Biomedical Campus in Cambridge.

The Cambridge Cancer Research Hospital’s Research Lead, Professor Richard Gilbertson, said: “This is an exciting time for Cambridge Cancer Research Hospital as we look for a construction partner to help us realize our ambition for a world-class institution. Thus, this moves us one step closer to rewriting the narrative of cancer for patients in the area and around the globe.”

The public and the personnel who will be working there may now take a virtual tour of the hospital to experience firsthand how the new structure will revolutionize local cancer care. According to Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the facility will be “unique,” and “speed the early identification of cancer.” Furthermore, it will be a leader in providing individualized care that will significantly enhance patient health outcomes.

Maria Caulfield, minister of health, stated: “We are committed to enhancing outcomes for cancer patients. Our New Hospital Programme has made it feasible to build the Cambridge Cancer Research Hospital. The modern cancer hospital in Cambridge project is supported by an initial £3.7 billion in government financing. Furthermore,  the program’s goal is to build 40 new hospitals by 2030 with cutting-edge amenities for patients and employees.

“The center combines top-tier NHS clinicians with creative university and industry-led research. This will aid in accelerating diagnosis throughout the eastern part of England. Additionally, it will transform the way patient care is delivered. I’m glad that we’re looking for a construction partner for this significant project right now.” The CCRH team is set to submit the next phase of the business process in the autumn of this year.
