Better patient health and care is at the centre of our plans
The new hospital will have the same core NHS services as today – including A&E, maternity, operating theatres, intensive care, imaging, inpatients and outpatients. These will be in new modern facilities with more clinical space.
We’re working with clinicians, patient and community groups, and health and care partners to provide better care and a better experience for our patients and staff.
With a third more clinical space in the new hospital and twice as many CT and MRI scanners, we will be able to assess and treat more patients.
More care will be provided on the same day, which will be more convenient for patients and fewer people will have to unnecessarily spend a night in hospital.
If someone is admitted to the hospital, more than 70% of beds will be located in single rooms compared to just 17% today.
Please read our Health and Care Services Strategy (3MB) to understand how we plan to deliver care, in partnership with other local health and care providers. [add link to IDF PAGE]
Impact of Covid-19
Our clinicians reviewed the strategy in light of Covid-19, to see if any changes were needed. And what impact these might have on our plans for a new Whipps Cross hospital.
We found that overall vision for future health and care services remains valid, but we will need to make some adaptations. Read more about our plans in ‘Health and care in a new Whipps Cross Hospital’ .
