Government confirms GBP 760m NHS investment

28th March 2018

Forty NHS hospitals and community services are to benefit from a GBP 760 million cash injection from the government.

Some GBP 300 million of this total will go the Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin sustainability and transformation partnership to transform local hospital services.

This will aid the development of an emergency care site and a separate planned care site, both of which will offer 24-hour urgent care centres.

The remainder of the money will be shared between 39 smaller projects, including GBP 6 million to upgrade services in eight trusts across Yorkshire and several million pounds for local NHS services in London, including one project worth up to GPB 11 million.

Health and social care secretary Jeremy Hunt has described this as one of the largest capital programmes in the NHS's history.

"As well as a whole new emergency care development in Shropshire, we are backing local NHS services with new buildings, beds and wards so that staff who have been working incredibly hard over winter can have confidence we are expanding capacity for the future," Mr Hunt commented.

He added that the government plans to announce one large scale scheme the size of the Shrewsbury and Telford plan every year going forward.
