Princess Alexandra Hospital – relocation of post-graduate medical centre
- Capital Investment - Getting Building Fund, Essex, Southend & Thurrock, Less than £2m
Fully Approved (Subject to conditions)
Construction in Progress
Expected Completion Date
Existing medical training facilities and library services at the Princess Alexandra Hospital are located within Parndon Hall, a listed building, and corporate training facilities are located in space at Harlow college, which is leased. Parndon Hall is no longer fit for purpose as extensive building maintenance is required, including work on the roof, walls, floors, electrics, and plumbing. The state of the building poses a risk to the safety and welfare of staff.
The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust needs to provide alternative on-site facilities for medical education teams to operate from, so they can continue providing essential services to Trust staff and students who are on placement to the Trust.
The new facility will provide a safe space in which medical education and corporate training can operate, and enable stakeholders to develop their services and provide income generating opportunities for the Trust while contributing significantly to their reputation as a place of excellence in which to work and be trained.
The Getting Building Fund funding will support the fit out of the new building and the purchase of essential equipment.
Delivery of the project has been approved by the SELEP Accountability Board on the 11 February 2022, subject to conditions. The conditions have now been met.
