These words came from a Government Minister in the House of Lords, Syed Kamall on the 20th July following a question from Roger Roberts who is the Lord of Llandudno. It will be very interesting to see what will happen over the next couple of years while the Conservative Government remains in location. To build 40 new hospitals by 2030 will require a significant amount of work from the Government. It can take many years for a new hospital to be built and so they need to be started in the next year. Anyway here is the question and answer which can be obtained from here.
Roger Roberts: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they will list the 40 new hospitals they have promised to build; how much building work has been completed on each new hospital; and when they expect each new hospital to admit its first patients.
Syed Kamall: The Government has committed to build 40 new hospitals by 2030, in addition to eight previously announced schemes.
The schemes are grouped into five cohorts for delivery by 2030, based on an assessment of readiness to progress and the extent to which schemes can realise the benefits of the national programme. This assessment is subject to continuous review and the timescales for individual schemes may change. A list of schemes and cohorts is attached, due to the size of the data. This includes where schemes are in construction and projected opening dates where this information is held centrally. There are eight schemes in cohort five, which refers to schemes yet to be confirmed and currently subject to an ongoing selection process. Table
