Extra support for Midland Metropolitan hospital

Chancellor Sajid Javid has announced £350 million in funding to ensure that important work to finish the construction of the Midland Metropolitan hospital goes ahead.

The funding will secure the future of the new hospital which has been stalled since the collapse of Carillon in 2018. It follows the government’s recent commitments of £2.7 billion to fund six new hospitals, £850 million for 20 hospital upgrades and £100 million towards developing business case proposals for new building projects across 34 hospitals.

The new Midland Metropolitan hospital, which is expected to be completed in April 2022, will bring together urgent care services from two hospitals across the region into one state-of-the-art site, promoting better patient safety and care while ensuring value for taxpayer’s money.

Javid said: “It is absolutely right that the Midland Metropolitan hospital is completed so that doctors and nurses working for our NHS across the West Midlands can deliver excellent care in brand new, state-of-the-art facilities. This investment of £350 million will help deliver on the people’s priorities of improving the NHS and levelling up services available across the country.”
